a little about me


Hi, I'm Jeevika.

I’m a writer and inquirer with a passion for radical honesty. As a poet 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 will soon be joining Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism for my Masters. 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 is forthcoming or has been featured in Ninth LetterNPRKajal 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.
