Niti Majethia is a 21 year old award winning writer and spoken word artist. She has written a book called Eunoia. She also writes for magazines & other media platforms. She enjoys editing too, and has been an editor for various magazines.
She was born and bred in Mumbai, India. Having very supportive and devoted parents, she started writing when she was very young. After winning various writing competitions in India, she won her first award in 2012, from Kidspirit Online (an American online publication for teens, based in New York). She then performed her work at the Kidspirit awards ceremony at New York University.
After, she worked as an editor at Kidspirit Online for three years. During this time, she won two more writing awards. She also established the Kidspirit Indian editorial board, in order to expose Indian kids to an international platform of publishing.
In 2013, she was invited to speak about her life and represent India at Uplift Festival in Byron Bay, Australia. That’s when she realized her passion for spoken word and began performing her work around the globe. She then published her first book, Eunoia (which means 'beautiful thinking'). It is now available online on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Flipkart (2014).
She is currently pursuing her undergraduate degree in writing and rhetoric at her dream university —The University of Texas at Austin. UT’s Moody College Of Communication and College of Liberal Arts are known to have produced numerous Pulitzer Prize winning writers, artists and media creatives.
Besides freelancing for other platforms, she is also currently an editor for Austin-based lifestyle and fashion publication Spark Magazine. (She was promoted from writer to copy editor in 2018.) She enjoys creative conceptualization too— coming up with themes and concepts for fashion photoshoots.
In 2018, Majethia was signed by RAW Artists Agency to perform spoken word poetry for their shows.
Today, she has been published in more than 100 magazines and newspapers in print. Her journey and career are an inspiration for many, and her interviews have been featured on numerous platforms like Brown Girl Magazine and Good Morning Texas.
She spends much of her time traveling, meeting people, performing and using her voice for various social causes.
With her work, she aims to break stereotypes and be vocal about issues that matter— such as mental health and education against discrimination.
When she isn't studying, working or traveling, Majethia can be found spending time with friends and family— exploring her love for food, modeling, binge watching Netflix or cheering for the Texas Longhorns.
