I had the opportunity to sit and chat informally with this mega brand builder while she was in Toronto for ANOKHI’s 10th Anniversary Event in Feb., 2013, where she shared her parallel journey from denying her roots as a young girl, to celebrating her ‘Desiness’ through the building of DesiHits! which she co-founded.
She’s a truly inspiring woman and her interview is a MUST view!
