Parvati Shallow grew up the eldest of three siblings on a
commune in Vero Beach, Florida. She and her family moved to Atlanta when
she was 11 years old. Shallow put herself through college, attending the
University of Georgia where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in
journalism with minors in French and Italian. While in college, she was an
active member of the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority and is a huge Bulldog fan!
A nature lover at heart, Shallow has spent extensive amounts of time
camping and hiking through North America's state parks including the
Tetons and Yellowstone. While in college, she organized a two-month
backpacking trip through Europe where she and two friends visited 13
countries, sleeping in youth hostels, train stations, on beaches and park
benches. Shallow's favorites include good sushi, wearing oversized
jerseys, karaoke and cheering on "The Dawgs." She is also
training for triathlons with her mom, Gale.
Shallow has found her niche with the Los Angeles boxing community and
began competing in 2004. She and some fellow boxers have parlayed her
passion for the sport into the creation of a non-profit organization
titled "Knockouts for Girls," a charity that provides
scholarships and boxing lessons for underprivileged girls. The
organization recently held their first fundraising event that included
boxing matches and a fashion show. Having been a huge success, she will be
boxing at a second fundraiser in February, 2008.
Shallow currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Her birth date is
September 21, 1982.
