Shwetal Shah

Country: UK/India

My favorite place: London
My favorite song: Counting Stars – One Republic
My favorite book: When breadth becomes air

Three things I dislike:  inequality, lack of emotional intelligence, lack of role model representation in the media
My greatest adventure: travelling to 14 countries and 20 cities in 2016
I think Europe’s biggest challenge is… political upheaval directly affecting young people the most, rise of nationalism, hate crime, social exclusion and intolerance levels on the rise
My changemaker idol: all the young people running their social action campaigns for the community that I have come across in the UK

My message to the EYA community:

“Your mission in life is to find the intersection between your heart’s gladness and the world’s hunger- Fredrick Buechner, given how privilegd we all are being part of the EYA community and using that for greater good.”
