Shivang Patel: Development Assistant

Shivang is always seeking ways to expand his mind, challenge his perspective, and cultivate his creativity. While on a five-month solo trip through Europe and Africa to do the aforementioned, he learned of Global Nomads Group’s work to foster cross-cultural learning and dialogue amongst youth around the world. The son of immigrants and an avid traveller, Shivang has been exposed to different cultures and peoples since childhood. This made GNG a perfect fit for the start of Shivang’s professional career. While studying neuroscience at The Ohio State University, Shivang curated TEDxOhioStateUniversity, engaged with the global TEDx community, and collaborated with Columbus, Ohio businesses. These opportunities gave Shivang exposure and experience that grew into a passion for event-planning, fundraising, and development work. 

While not at work or cheering for his beloved Buckeyes, Shivang is doing anything that involves food, travel, photography, or any combination of the three.
