Richa Sheth

Head of Content

Words, Richa Sheth believes, is what brings people, together. Having nurtured this habit through her childhood, it didn’t take long for her to realize that her sole purpose was to write; for herself and for others. She started as a writer with the renowned landscape architect, Prabhakar Bhagwat, in Ahmedabad and then went on to work as a writer and an editor at Verve Magazine in Mumbai.

Deep down, she knew that there was more out there for her and she quit her job, to enter the world of freelancing, as a content curator and an editor. 

Armed with a degree in MA English Studies and Critical Thinking from the University of Exeter, the world of experience she had gathered and her undying love for words, she now works at The Yellow Compass, putting her ingenuity and skills to the test everyday. When she’s not typing away on her vintage Mac, you can find her indulging in a cup of coffee with her books for company.
