When she’s not binge watching tv shows, making glorious puns, enjoying great company at quirky cafes or adding things to her shopping cart, Vaishnavi Pallapothu is studying international relations and trying to keep up with international and national politics. A passionate reader, writer, intersectional feminist and foodie, Vaishnavi’s ultimate goal in life is to travel as much and as far as possible. She loves learning new languages and about cultures from around the world. At the REF, Vaishnavi has written several articles and interviewed trailblazing women for the Feminifesto podcast. In the future, she would like to work as a translator/interpreter and diplomat.
