About Avni

Avni Shah is a writer, communications strategist, and fashionista. Born in New York, raised in New Jersey and transplanted to California, she is also the daughter of first-generation immigrants.

A storyteller at heart, she believes in the power of words to engender dialogue, awareness and excitement around an idea, concept or movement. She is most passionate about elevating diverse perspectives and voices through a variety or written media, including fiction, blogs, op-eds and business writing.

Avni currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, also a writer; her two-year-old son, who loves to tell stories—especially about ladybugs and bumblebees eating pancakes; and her rescue pup, who can share a lifetime through one look.

She loves reading and wine tasting, and binge watching reruns.
