Dr. Gayatri Sethi is an educator, writer, and independent consultant based in Atlanta. She teaches and writes about social justice, global studies, and comparative education. Born in Tanzania and raised in Botswana, she is of South Asian Punjabi descent, multilingual, and polycultural. She reflects on these lifelong experiences of identity, immigration, and belonging in her debut book titled Un/belonging. When she is not homeschooling or recommending readings as @desibookaunty, she travels the globe with her students and family. Learn more about Gayatri on her website here.
