So grateful for being in Vogue India’s 50 most influential global Indians list!
“How many of us can pinpoint our career paths to an allergic reaction? Part-time Model, documentary filmmaker and student on her way to bagging a PhD from Oxford University, Kumar’s career as a field conservation biologist in the Australian Outback took a turn when she became allegic to Eucalyptus! The 24-year-old multi-hyphenate then began studying human evolutionary biology, with a focus on colorism. Born in Sydney, Australia, to a Punjabi father and Bengali mother, she now lives between cities – London is her current location, while New York serves as her professional base. Her Wardrobe, similarly, is a cultural confaltion. Think vintage meets grunge and a little bit bohemian. The one constant through it all? “I can never leave home without my Dr Martens.” – Akanksha Kamath” – Vogue India
