I’m Vaishnavi Sayal, a 24-year-old who believes that all of us have a part to play in this world and its development to create a better, more inclusive future for all. I come from New Delhi, India and studied Law at Cardiff University, UK.
I wouldn’t claim to be a writer by passion. However, I enjoy being engaged in discussions and debates by passion. From national politics to international affairs, from issues of refugee crises to mental health awareness, all these things drive me to work towards my dream of making a difference, big or small. I would like to say that this passion also led me to change my career path from legal to the development sector.
Professionally, I have been working in the development sector in India for 2 years now, and have had the pleasure to experience the youth engagement, environment education and road safety domain within this highly nuanced sector. My aim and passion is to be an expert in program management and delivery in the development sector, regardless of what type of project comes my way. I am yet miles away to achieve this goal, but the journey has been full of interesting ups and sobering downs, each with their own lessons and learnings.
