Shweta Aggarwal Colorism Growing Up

(Time listed is in PST)


A computer science engineer by background, Shweta’s passion lies in writing. This passion emerged a few years ago when she noticed the lack of representation in children’s books, driving her to launch the Dev and Ollie series of picture books. The books have been very well received in schools and libraries all over the world. She was awarded the Asian Women of Achievement award for Arts & Culture in 2016 and invited by Her Majesty to Buckingham Palace for the UK-India Year of Culture in 2017. Last year, triggered by the BLM movement, she started writing her memoir based on her journey through colorism from the age of six. She has just completed the 1st draft and is immersed in the laborious task of editing. She is on a mission to instigate change, even at the risk of exposing herself to the world.
