Our founder was featured on We Are The City

Aug 30, 2016

Our founder, Aditi Rao, was featured on We Are The City which is a website that highlights the work of women entrepreneurs in India and the UK.

“I have been working in the youth development and social-justice-education arenas for almost a decade, including at Pravah and the Gandhi Fellowship in India, SEDEPAC and UNITONA in Mexico, and the Possibility Project and Student Press Initiative in the USA. At the same time, I have been pursuing my own artistic practice, particularly as a poet, for just as long, having done my MFA in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College and won several awards for my poetry, including the Srinivas Rayaprol Prize for Poetry, TheTFA Creative writing in English Award, and the Muse India-Satish Verma award for my first book, The Fingers Remember.

Tasawwur was the coming together of these different strains of my life— my answer to the question of where the artist in me meets the social-justice-educator in me.”
