Radio presenter, actor, singer, entrepreneur
One of our favourite morning voices, Malavika, recently took over operations at The Hive, a performing arts venue. From dance and music, to stand-up comedy, theatre and public speaking classes – this is truly a bee hive of creativity. A hands-on managing director, Malavika conducts the Speak Up programme, training children in public speaking and effective communication, leading up to Trinity College exam. So far 200 Dubai kids have taken the course. Her dream is to turn The Hive into a collaborative welcoming space where any artist will find a home. Meanwhile, Malu fans need not despair – she will continue with her day job, presenting on City 101.6.
HER DREAM: Make theatre and public speaking skills a part of the curriculum in schools, as it teaches children empathy, teamwork and builds interpersonal skills.
