Hi, I’m Ishani Nigam. As a master’s student pursuing Marketing Communications at the University of Melbourne, my passion for student development, leadership and public speaking took shape while working here as a peer mentor and a student club leader. I love to work on projects that compel me to utilise marcom knowledge and video creation skills. So, I aim to empower young leaders, students and recent graduate by sharing my experiences through videos, podcast and informative blogs.By Ishani Nigam
