Priyanka is studying Journalism with Human Rights at Kingston University and has been the President of the Kingston University Journalism Society for two years in a row – now re-elected for her third term.
Her passion for journalism and current affairs has led her to become the Manager of the International Political Forum – a platform for young people to write about the stories that matter most to them, particularly the ones that are often overlooked by mainstream media.
As her interest in the link between human rights and politics developed, Priyanka joined the United Nations Association in February 2014 as their Communications and Social Media Intern, an opportunity that allowed her to broaden her knowledge about the UN, as well as network with MPs, parliamentarians, and top UN officials. She has since gone on to intern for the Communications teams at the British Institute of Human Rights and One World Media.
In March 2014, Priyanka founded the Spread The Word Campaign – a campaign that aims to introduce libraries in homeless shelters across London. The campaign has since gone on to tie up with shelters across the city and has been featured in numerous publications such as The Huffington Post, ChiswickW4, Pavement Magazine, The Urban Times, The Student Journals and Exposure Magazine.
