Okay now to the actual post. Lately I feel like I've been inspired by some of my favorite and most positive role models all over again. Some of you may already know who they are. I've just kind of felt crappy lately because I took a little break from hosting and all and now I'm back at it again! In a society where young girls look up to people like Miley Cyrus, it's time to bring attention to some POSITIVE influences.

 

 

Superwoman

aka Lilly Singh. Most of you know I've been a huge fan of hers since day 1. I remember when I met her she seriously just gave off the most positive vibes whenever she entered the room, always giving others a reason to smile, love others and love themselves. She's also doing amazing things in Mumbai right now, meeting Kapil from Comedy Nights, Madhuri, Juhi Chawla and Jazzy B. Like seriously, how freaking awesome is that. She also made some great videos in collaboration with other Youtubers during her time in LA. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. In her videos she often depicts what other people are thinking, but would never admit which is both eye opening and hilarious.

These next two women have both always been amazing role models in my life. They're TV hosts in the South Asian entertainment industry AND mothers. Seriously, anyone who can balance family life AND a career this demanding deserves a gold metal. These two women are

Gurmeet Sodhi

and

Nisha Mathur

. I've had the pleasure of working with both of them recently and they're two of the most humble, genuine and hardworking people I've ever met. They both strive to empower women to stand up against injustices in our society and they're both doing a great job at it. Check out Nisha Mathur's show

Shades of Shakti

on TV Asia on March 8th at 8pm!

I'm going to be very brief about this next amazing woman just because I interviewed her for

Brown Girl Magazine

and I'd rather have you guys read that when it's up. She's known as the 'Khatarnak(dangerous) Dholi' of Texas and her name is Hardeep Sandhu. She's amazing at playing the dhol and is so caring that I feel like I've known her my whole life even though we've never met. She's always given me genuine advice and such great moral support. There seriously needs to be more people like her in the world, oh and shes absolutely hilarious. Hardeep has also proved society wrong by finding true love despite being in the desi entertainment industry, she's engaged! http://www.browngirlmagazine.com/2014/04/hardeep-sandhu-dholi-girl/ HERE'S THE LINK TO THE INTERVIEW :)

I'm actually really tired and haven't been sleeping well lately so I'm going to attempt to knock out. I'll be back with more soon. Hope you all enjoyed this post!
