“Be the change you want to see in the world”
Srishti Uppal is a 16-year-old writer, reader, and activist from India.
She volunteers for many organisations such as PETA, writing and campaigning about social and economic issues facing the world today.
She is currently a contributor for Culaccino magazine, and is the founder of a mental health organisation called Life is Life.
Her aim is to get her Ph.D and begin work as a therapist in India, where there is still a large amount of stigma attached to mental health discussions. She aims to make therapy more accessible and affordable.
She believes strongly in the strength of the written word, in the power of nerds, and in the ardent need for world peace and harmony, and will go to great lengths to promote the same.
