I met Arisa Cox back in 2011 and it literally was love at first slice, haha! We met at the gigantic green carpet ceremony for the 2011 IIFA Awards being held in Toronto that year. We star gazed together, talked about Bollywood and Hollywood and randomly strolled off to have a slice of pizza together.

ANOKHI MEDIA's CEO Raj Girn On Becoming The Woman She Never Wanted To Be

11/6/2016
More
I started working at ANOKHI MEDIA in May of 2013. I was in the starting phase of my media career at the time, looking to be a part of brands and companies that aligned with who I was. If I couldn't find a personal connection in the work I was doing, I would suffocate. ANOKHI MEDIA was no such company. There I found a voice, and I was able to use it, flaunt it and share it with whomever I spoke to. But what many don't know is that ANOKHI MEDIA came from the lack of a voice, within the...

When I met Mark, he was fun, charming and enjoyed the outdoors, he was also easy to talk to.

I met Ammoye almost 3 years ago. When I met her, I felt as if I was speaking to an angel. A woman pure with passion. A woman with genuine intent. A woman who knew exactly what she wanted.

This week I speak with Amandeep Singh, also known as Ink from Inkquisitive Illustrations. In my eyes, Ink is a portal of depth in meaning, culture, humility and artistry. I met Ink way back in 2013 and had the pleasure of interviewing him for ANOKHI MEDIA at the time. Little did I know that I was speaking to him at one of his very first international art tours (the start to many successful world tours might I add). When speaking to him then, it struck me that Ink's understanding of his...
