Niti Kewalramani is an associate producer, a teacher, an entrepreneur, and an author, but the role she enjoys the most is that of a counselor. She holds a Certificate in College Counseling (UCLA – Distinction) and is a member of the International ACAC and AIIEC. Her boutique firm offers counsel, guidance, and application support to students exploring higher education options abroad. The advisory boasts a global clientele, with university acceptances in prestigious universities such as Stanford, Princeton, Brown, Upenn, Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, and others.
Niti has been the Joint Lead on the successful Harvard Youth Lead the Change, Dubai Chapter, and she is regularly invited as a panelist at college counseling webinars. She has conducted workshops at many international schools, such as Dubai American Academy, The Repton School, Jumeirah College, and Al Safa School.
College applications are a stressful time for students and their families. Recognizing the significance of this critical time in the lives of young adults, Niti has a knack for understanding each student’s unique story, genuine passions, and academic interests and strives to carve the third dimension that is so important to differentiate them from the crowded application pool.
Niti has worked in both a school and college environment and is trained in interviewing and administering interests and abilities batteries. Niti started her career by teaching in a college before moving to the corporate world, where she worked with leading firms such as Accenture and U.D.V.
In Dubai, she co-founded M.R.I. Worldwide, one of the largest Executive Search organizations with over 1200 offices worldwide. Niti conceptualized, negotiated, and launched the M.R.I. brand in U.A.E., expanding it from zero to a nationality entity with several high-profile clients across North Africa and M.E. Having been in recruitment for over 16 years, Niti understands the job market requirements. She utilizes that experience to narrow the gap between college and career goals.
Niti enjoys scripting for amateur theater productions. She is the associate producer of ‘Why Knot,’ a documentary that questions the practice of monogamy. Her debut book, TIES OF BLOOD, is more than just a quick-paced thriller. The embedded social critique sparks introspection and encourages a discussion on the changing role of men, women, families, and marriages in modern India.
