I’m Niyati Sharma.
I am the Founder and Executive Director of Pratisandhi Foundation, a student-led non-profit organisation working towards sexual health and education in India. With a team of over fifty volunteers, we are on a quest to redefine how the youth approaches questions related to sex and sexual well-being.
I am currently a student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver pursuing a degree that will probably not be even remotely related to what I will actually end up doing in life. But gotta get that piece of paper, right?
In addition to being someone who always (read: sometimes) appears to have life together, I am involved with organisations such as Enactus UBC and am an AFS Alumni member. I hope you find through my blog, whatever it is you’re looking for. Whether it’s that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow or just a boredom buster. Here you will find silly jokes, pain, laughter and the little wisdom I have gained from my experiences, all compressed into words and sentences that make sense only to my mind.
A Veil of Innocence is a name that was coined by a friend of mine and seemed to stick. It is not just a label but a mindset that allowed me to see the world through it. With time (and age) the veil has slowly begun to slip off and replaced by an ordinary girl, trying to navigate her way through life.
Join me, won’t you?
