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

Sanaya Patel, Assistant Editor

Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m going to be a lawyer in a few months! Equally thrilled and nervous about working in our courts. And absolutely ready to dive deep into work. I am also trying to watch more movies (“cinema!”), and teach myself some more music. I am learning to love animals (just realised I am most definitely a dog person) and learning to love like animals — selflessly, with more trust. The world would be a better place if humans were more like animals.

Tell us about what you do at One Future Collective?
I am part of the core team at One Future Collective which oversees vision and strategy. I am also transitioning from my role as an editor at The Thought Project, where I was editing articles and designing our publications, to one which allows me to be more involved in the policy / legal projects at OFC.

Why One Future Collective?
The team is vibrant and young, and there’s just an unending supply of support. The attitude at OFC really is, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right”. I also love that my pushback and questions on most of our projects is met with attention and addressed adequately.

Your favourite One Future Collective memory.
Our first MeetUp! The vibe was fresh and encouraging — people from so many diverse sectors came out to see what we had to offer.

What inspires you?
Kind and intelligent people inspire me. Oh, and the world in its natural greeeeeen.
