Team One Future | Melita Menezes

Get to know the fabulous people behind the magic at One Future Collective!

Melita Menezes, Program and Outreach Officer, Bangalore

Tell us a little about yourself (not only professional aspects).
I am an Analytics Consultant with a keen interest in Mental Health and Public Policy. I have completed my Masters in Applied Economics and am equally interested in Psychology and Sociology. I am always up for a challenge and I love to meet and interact with people. My idea of fun, however, is a good book/series to binge on while having momos and/or chicken wings.

Tell us about what you do at One Future Collective?
I am a Program and Outreach Officer, with a focus to grow the OFC family in Bangalore especially in the areas of mental health and gender justice: through outreach, research and education based advocacy.

Why One Future Collective?
To be a part of OFC is to simply grow, make a difference and believe in a better tomorrow every day, all the days with inspiring and warm people to lean on. This vibe makes OFC extremely dear. Also, the verticals and themes that we focus on are aligned to my areas of interests.

Your favourite One Future Collective memory.
Meeting Vandita and Jerin in Bangalore and learning about OFC and the amazing work they do.

What inspires you?
The young and old persevering to make a better tomorrow. Their efforts and dedication inspires me to do my bit to make the tomorrow better today.
