Avni Shah is a writer, editor and communications strategist.
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.
With over ten years of experience elevating products, individuals, and movements in high-profile fora and publications, including the Huffington Post and The Guardian, I have recently launched my own communications consultancy. I’ve contributed to a variety of arenas: non-profit, startup, technical and creative, and have addressed audiences including youth, parents, service users, service providers, donors, constituents, policymakers and corporations. My passion stems from a love of story-telling, and a desire to connect emotionally with the world around me.
