Meet Your Neighbor: Shivani Patel

"I've always had a passion for helping others, in any way I could. After losing my dad at the age of 17, I put a lot of my focus in school and doing what I could to make him proud. I was balancing my studies while also being a caretaker for my grandma. While I loved being busy and putting time into building my career and making sure things were okay at home, I realized I never got a chance to fully focus on myself. After finally being able to get my grandma 24-hour care and finishing my Masters program, I started working with QCH full-time. I decided to use the time I had outside of work and home to finally focus on my passion for content creation. I decided to start my own YouTube channel. I'm happy to finally be at a place where I can continue building my career while also devoting time to my hidden talent and hobby. My ultimate goal is to spread positivity and show people that it is never too late to follow your dreams and enjoy life!"
