An artist, an aspiring plant mom, and an observer of the world around her – Riya is a Political Science major with a love for research, marketing and psychology. She can generally be found near a window with her face buried in a book and a cup of coffee next to her. Born and brought up in a city where different cultures and aspirations coexist, and where everyone speaks different versions of the same language, she is fascinated by the chaos and cohesion that comes along with diversity.
For a long time, she believed that her education and career belonged to two separate boxes. But after exploring different fields through internships and volunteering, she eventually learned to unlearn that belief.
