"Shivani's workshops give me a chance to explore technologies that I wouldn't have known otherwise. Her unique way of teaching helped young women like me to find our passion and mixing it with technology. It gave me confidence and I discovered my own interest through her workshop. Her workshops gave me that sense of engagement with the people in the group and with Shivani. She encourages people to be themselves and bring the best of those individuals" - Atia Irfan (student) -Shakti Youth

Shivani has run numerous filming workshops for Shakti Youth with high school students and we always receive positive feedback from the students about these sessions. She is personable and encouraging when working with the students, two traits that are invaluable for anyone working with youth. 

I have found Shivani to be reliable and flexible to work with and she always goes the extra mile. From taking on last minute filming jobs to creating extra content for our organisation, she is clearly dedicated to her work. I would highly recommend Shivani’s services without hesitation and I am excited to continue to work with her on future projects."

Right of Passage

"I claim it with pride"

Shivani Karan was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. As a teenager, she took an unprecedented stand to honour her ancestry and culture by refusing to remove her ‘khil’ (traditional nose piercing). Excluded from school at 14 for taking this stand, it had a lasting impact that gave her an even stronger resolve to advocate for human rights and to help others. This adornment represented not only a physical piece of jewelry; it held the connection to a deep and rich heritage. It was this stance that was the catalyst for her quest to trace her true origins back through Fiji and to India. Her actions are compounded by the fact that the origins of her ancestors are unknown, only that they were taken to Fiji as Indentured laborers from India four generations ago.
