Jeevan has a Master’s in Public Policy, with a strong interest in geopolitics, international relations, and British politics.
We asked Jeevan Randhawa to answer a few questions, so you could get to know him better—here’s what he shared:
🍽 If I could invite any person, living or dead, out for dinner, it would have to be Guru Gobind Singh Ji
He is the 10th Guru of Sikhism. It would be fascinating to understand his views on the world we live in today, and the persecution he faced; how he sacrificed his children so that Sikhism lived on in the face of Mughal rule in the Punjab region of India.
🇻🇳 The most interesting place I have ever visited is Vietnam. The food is arguably the most delicious I’ve ever had, and the locals were warm and kind. I visited both Ho Chi Minh City & Hội An. It was the best combination of chilling out and exploring a new urban environment, while also learning about a new culture, history, and politics.
🧞♂️ If I could make one wish to change the world, I’d want to end world hunger. This was the easiest question to answer—it’s core to my personal and religious beliefs that no human should ever go hungry. Food is a basic necessity, and from a UK perspective, I think it’s absolutely criminal that there are children going hungry and nurses having to rely on food banks to make ends meet—we’re meant to be one of the world’s wealthiest nations.
🏝 If I were I to become stranded on a desert island, with enough forewarning so as to plan my inventory, I would bring:
A football—I don’t think I could ever live without one. And I reckon I could have endless fun with it.
A radio—I can’t live without music, and I do love listening to LBC.
A Swiss Army Knife—I needed to put at least one practical object for an answer!
🧘🏽♂️ I’m pretty good at being at peace with myself and treating myself right—three self-care practices I have adopted are:
Meditation—as soon as I wake up and just before I go to sleep, I meditate for 5-10 minutes and thank God for everything I have in life.
The gym—this helps with both my physical and mental health. The feeling of stepping outside after a workout, especially on a cold day, is the best. I feel like I’ve accomplished something amazing.
Ice baths / Cold showers—they’re the best medicine for recovery after football on the weekends. You only have one body, so you should take recovery after sport seriously. That said, I do enjoy regular cheat meals because I’d go insane without them!
