Having worked as a lifestyle journalist for media houses like India Today and Times Group, Shivani has been invested in writing thought-provoking editorials on the country’s socio-cultural complexities. As a young conscientious professional, she saw lifestyle beyond fashion, food, and travel. Owing to her unwavering faith in the power of awareness and communication, she wrote stories about women breaking barriers, decoding misogynistic traditional practices, and other pressing issues. She then joined Nykaa, and continued to be the voice of change with her impactful campaigns on LGBTQI+ community, women entrepreneurs, and body positivity. Apart from being an avid reader and writer, Shivani is a mythology-enthusiast—who is always questioning ancient narratives—a poet, a sustainable fashion aficionado, and a freestyle dancer.
