Having graduated from the London School Of Economics (UOL) with an upper class degree in International Development, Suniya earned a Diploma in Professional Project Management. During the course of her study she developed research and analytical skills encouraging her to explore all genres of development sector. Adhering to that she avidly involved herself in fieldwork apart from the institutionalised learning.

As a development agent in making and an advocate of global development she exposed herself to varied cultures travelling all around, be it internship opportunities, cultural exchanges, volunteering, conferences or research work. Continuing her zeal for public policy and towards a peaceful, inclusive world she undertook a project in Turkey; facilitating and capacity building for the local NGOs. Suniya has been one of the founding members and Dean of the ‘Diplomats for Development Society’- a society acting as an accessible platform for development enthusiasts from all spheres; economic, social, political.

Lately she has been serving as a Project Coordinator for an international organisation, Media Matters for Democracy. Alongside, propelling to her commitment as a climate change defender she works under the capacity of Social Media Manager for Climate Change Action.

A series of academia, volunteer and work experience paved her way to the MIPP at BSIA. From now on she aspires to continue learning and growing together with fellow MIPPs as a team!
