About Me

Rashi's journey began with writing poetry. Her passion for writing soon brought her to the world's first journalism school at the University of Missouri. She is now a junior studying Investigative Convergence journalism with a focus in business journalism. Middle schooled in Australia, high schooled and brought up in India and now pursuing her college degree in America, she has gained a global perspective on journalism. She has worked on stories ranging from period poverty in Missouri to how urban agriculture is a solution to food insecurity.  

Most recently she interned with Startland News, a digital publication with a focus on startups and entrepreneurship in Kansas City. Startland News is a part of the Kansas City Startup Foundation, a non-profit organization that is devoted to making Kansas City one of the most entrepreneurial communities in America. 

She has also covered entrepreneurship in rural Missouri for Missouri Business Alert and worked as a Production Assistant for KOMU-8. She has a keen interest in covering business stories. She dabbles in video, audio and photo editing and producing and teaches belly dance to keep her love for dance alive. She currently works as a writing tutor for the Writing Center at Mizzou and a Lifeworks Dance Instructor at MizzouRec.
