I was born in Pune, India in 2004 but have grown up in Japan, specifically in both Miyazaki and Osaka prefectures. As a native speaker of both Japanese and English, I studied in both Japanese public schools, as well as international schools. With language skills such as fluent Hindi, intermediate Spanish, and a little bit of German, bridging cultural gaps has been a significant part of my life. As founder and director of youth advocacy organizations such as Earth Guardians Japan, a published author, and organizer of events/projects for working to solve global issues, I have been consistently involved with youth, as well as professionals across many fields in politics, policy making, and economics.
