As part of PoC Mental Health Week, Srishti will be presenting a workshop on the mental health repercussions of discrimination. Every PoC student experiences daily discrimination at Uni, along with additional feelings of impostor syndrome and inadequacy, which translate into real physiological and psychological disorders in many people. She hopes to help people recognise these symptoms in themselves and others around them.

Srishti is a BA student, majoring in Sociology and Media and Communications. A Black Belt, trained mountaineer, poet and debater, she can mostly be found wrapped in a shawl, reading fat academic books or writing papers and poetry, and frequently shouting about how Feminism should be renamed “common sense”.
