Shivangi terms herself a poet-in-bloom with a strong political drive. Owing to her love for writing and a gradual, yet riveting course through books, she went the Literature way after Grade 12. This was despite having studied science as a core subject in high school. With a clear understanding that there’s more to learn in life and some lessons go beyond mere texts, Shivangi hopes to steer her academic interest in International Relations further. She plans to intertwine the empathetic cognizance of literature with the ground realities of foreign policy making. Having worked on freelance projects pertaining to foreign policy and connected areas of research, she plans to build technical expertise in the field and eventually engage in diplomacy.
