About Anjali Dwivedi

Home for me is the small, picturesque city of New Delhi, India. Growing up, my relative liberty and affluence were largely unapparent to me. My concepts of inequality and injustice informed by trivial unfairness such as a small kid collecting garbage in my school, while the fortunate kids were taught the importance of education and undesirability of child labor. Despite my comfortable upbringing, I possessed, from very early on, a strong curiosity and eagerness to understand the people and the world around me. This happened at first through language, later through travel, and today in my current initiative, as a founder of non-governmental organization, “kiran ki anjali”, dedicated to create a level field for women in the society .
From childhood I evolved from an exclusive twin talker, from an English-speaking chatterbox, to a fluent Hindi lover. As an undergraduate majoring in business and law, I was thrilled to explore the role which a lawyer can play in eliminating the problems of the society and to be able to engage with an increasing number of people globally. Throughout my studies, I worked with various research institutions, lawyers, Solicitor General of India and catena of law firms, and further nourishing my cultural and linguistic curiosities, as well as the nascent teacher in me, who was to mature further as I took on roles as a teacher for the children of daily wagers. Additional time spent participating at various debates and mooting competitions allowed me to better comprehend the depths of diversity and adversity, justice and injustice, in my own community and the world. These experiences, compounded by my natural curiosity, inspired me to undertake more global pursuits upon passing my school, first as a volunteer in Amnesty International, and then as an organizing committee head for various competitions hosted by our university.
My experiences since graduate school as a human rights worker, leadership and problem solving instructor for young women, and education advocate for family harmony have further reinforced my beliefs in the importance of human rights and education, the potential of the law to protect and strengthen these institutions, and my desire to act as an empathetic, socially conscious advocate in these contexts through a legal career.
