I write about politics, culture, gender, and social movements from New Jersey and New Delhi. I’m a weekly columnist at Feministing, a regular contributor to Talkspace, and my writing has appeared at Time, Teen Vogue, The Washington Post, attn:, Bitch, NDTV, The Harvard Advocate, The Harvard Crimson, and more. My work on consent has been cited in multiple popular and scholarly outlets, including New York, Mic, Bustle, the Duke Law Journal and several books on sexual violence in higher education. Writers at the New York Post and the Globe and Mail have accused me of ruining sex for everyone, so I like to think I’ve had an impact.
In 2015, I graduated from Harvard College, where I was a commencement speaker and popular columnist at The Harvard Crimson. I was a 2015-2016 Fulbright fellow in women’s studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, where I completed my master’s in Indian cinema, theater, and visual studies in 2018. My research on Hindi cinema and popular erotica has been published in Critical Collective.
I have a proven history of writing smart, punchy web, app, and audio content with a knack for speaking to young people and women. I have particular expertise in health and social justice issues, but as a contributing writer for Hippo Thinks Content Marketing, I’ve written thought leadership pieces for clients in tech, business, telecommunications and beyond.
If you have any project for which you think I’d be a great fit, feel free to reach out at email@example.com (content writing samples available on request).
