I am currently studying in St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous) in Bangalore. I have been studying theatre since the age of 6, and am an avid lover of the practice. I have interned at Multi-Media art companies such as Maraa, and at Vimochana, an NGO that works for the betterment of women in society.

Why One Future Collective?
I really loved the type of the work the organisation is doing. I feel like I can make an impact via this organisation. It offers a safe space for the intellectual, the artist, the scientist and everybody else to come together and to create something new.

What inspires you?
Everything. I am a firm believer in interconnectivity of the arts, the sciences, and the social sciences. Without one, the other cannot be fully explored. I want to work in building this interconnectivity and creating a space for all ages, genders, sexualities, and races to connect and build. It is this interconnectivity that inspires me.
