Hi, I'm Jeevika.
I’m a writer and inquirer with a passion for radical honesty. As a poet & reporter hungry for the world, I'm most interested in conversations surrounding development, art, culture, identity, and social justice.
Originally from India, I graduated from the University of Washington (Seattle) in December 2016, and am currently pursuing my M.S. at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. I have a B.A. in English (Creative Writing) and a double minor in Philosophy and Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies. Before college, I lived in Cameroon (Yaounde), which is where I founded my own creative-literary journal.
I've worked in corporate marketing, public and media relations, communications, journalism, and publishing. I was also a barista for several years, and can make a mean cup of coffee.
My work has been featured in NPR, Ninth Letter, The Ploughshares Blog, Kajal Magazine, Crosscut, Sentinel Literary Quarterly, Cleaver Magazine, Susie Magazine, The Seattle Globalist, Alaska Airlines Magazine, and more. Please contact me if you'd like to collaborate on a project.
