About me
Sharan Dhaliwal started her own magazine, giving South Asians a platform to talk about and showcase talent. She controls all areas of magazine content - publishing online, creating illustrations, managing requests, copywriting, designing print issue, organising and curating events/exhibitions, managing all (very successful) social media channels and talking on radio/panels about representation. She was previously at UK Parliament as the Social Media Editor, where she worked with both Houses, as well as the individual institute, to provide information and entertainment to their users. She also worked on the redesign and promotion of the new beta website being built for parliament.uk.
