Shiv combines his deep love for the outdoors with a healthy intellectual curiosity. He believes that expansion of ideas can cause the greatest change, and that in communication lies the key to a more diverse and accepting society. This motivates him to hone his skills to outreach his boundaries as well as to groom himself to be an agent of change capable of making a discernible difference . Shiv is passionate about photography, trekking and mountain biking. He loves world cinema, music and good food, not necessarily in that order. He believes that the YIF is a platform which would allow him to learn and grow both from a world class faculty and a diverse peer group.
