Ever since Avni was a child, she has been immensely curious, ever ready to figure out the “why” of things. In her college life, she got the opportunity to explore activities ranging from quizzing to bird watching. Participating in different activities brought her immense joy and helped her recognise her interest in fields unrelated to Science. She is now hoping to delve deeper into her interests through the interdisciplinary education that the YIF offers. Avni enjoys playing tennis, cooking, and watching movies in her free time. After the Fellowship, she plans to venture into the not-for-profit space. Avni believes the YIF can serve as a bridge to help her transition to a career in the social sector. She hopes to become a purposeful and impactful leader by learning from her experiences and peers at the YIF.
