Ami J. Sanghvi is an Indian American, 24-year-old woman based in New York City and New Jersey. She is a poet [with a deep love for all things old-world contemporary], aspiring novelist, MMA fighter in-training, fitness-enthusiast, graphic artist, and photographer. Ami is currently a brand ambassador for Abella Eyewear, Just Strong Clothing, Trendy Now Co, Rox Jewelry, and Pineapple Clothing. Additionally, was a monthly photo contributor at The Best of Africa from August 2017-August 2018. She’s also done promotional work for The Calibar Collection and Civion Accessories.
She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in 2016 (commenced degree at Arizona State University, completed it at Purdue University), and is considering pursuing her Master of Fine Arts in the coming years before delving into her doctorate-level studies. She is also in the process of completing coursework for several specialization certifications (including creative writing, photography, graphic design, social media marketing, philosophy, etc.).
At the current time, Ami is prioritizing her poetry-writing, graduate school admissions, and MMA-training. This blog and its corresponding, creative works are living and breathing organisms which wholly embrace concepts of extremes (Indian and American, writer and fighter, creator and destroyer…) unpredictability, exploration, shape-shifting, and drastic change. Still, the primary objectives always remain the same: the pursuit of knowledge and relentless personal growth.
Poetry collection composition, novel-writing, slam poetry development, and competitive fighting preparation are all in the current game plan for 2018.
