Karishma Patel

UK Chapter Board Member

I am a BBC Radio Newsreader and Journalist based in Manchester. My interests range from art and literature to yoga. I volunteered at Shanti Bhavan for three months in 2019 after finishing my Master’s degree in English at Cambridge University—so, naturally, I taught Shakespeare and other English poetry to the brilliant Year 11 and 12 students! They both impressed me and made me laugh every single day. I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to stay involved with Shanti Bhavan’s incredible students, and hope to one day see many of them attending the UK’s top universities.
