Shreya Khatri

Food Influencer

I began food blogging fueled by my passion for capturing moments through photography and my fascination with food. It’s a journey where every dish tells a story, and my blog becomes a canvas for sharing these culinary memories.
Navigating my food blogging journey encountered roadblocks due to limited friends and travel opportunities. Despite these challenges, I’ve focused on creating unique content, exploring local flavours, and building connections online to overcome the constraints of physical presence.

Krithi Kuttathil 

Beauty Influencer
  I was in my first year of college, and at that time I had only two things that I called makeup, my kohl and my lip balm. I was selected for the college fashion show and saw people wearing makeup, I didn’t even know what most of the things that they were using were, I politely asked them if I could use their products, but they denied l. I did feel bad but post that I was very curious to try makeup. And then one day I started filming myself while applying my mom’s makeup, figuring out how exactly is it used. And then with every new day, I started loving makeup, was always excited to learn new techniques, and loved it when I had my little vanity of makeup. And today year we are, it’s almost 6 years, growing every day and falling in love with the world of makeup a little more every day.
 Back when I started creating content, nobody even thought that this could be a job, Full-time was no change, I was asked to keep this as a hobby only, because of which I couldn’t give a lot of time to my content creation, lost many opportunities because of that, had to take a break because of health issues, but what’s the fun if there are no barriers right?

Tanya Singhal

Renewable Energy Influencer
After graduating from IIT Delhi and a few years into my consulting career at BCG, a pivotal moment in 2010 led me to start my entrepreneurial journey in renewable energy. I founded SolarArise to make solar prices at par, or even lower, than conventional power. 
Slowly I kept moving towards making my vision into a reality and 10 years later, after raising and deploying >2000 Rs Cr of capital to successfully build 7 solar plants totalling ~half a GW at sub-coal power prices, I could power >250,000 homes and reduce >600,000 tons of CO2 emissions/annum and today our assets are listed as a part of a trust on the London Stock Exchange. Solar is now cheaper than fossil fuels!
I strongly believe it is a myth that Infrastructure is a man’s world. Maybe historically, by the sheer numbers, it has been, but it’s no longer true.  I have been to construction sites, worn hard hats, visited Chinese module factories, taken roles across the value chain and encouraged my female colleagues to do the same.
 I have been in board rooms full of men and yet never felt out of place! I have also been on the government ministry panels, many times as the only young woman. Achieving a successful exit with SolarArise listed on the LSE underlines the credibility of women as formidable leaders in infrastructure and sustainability.

Mridula Khanna

Mom & lifestyle influencer
Award Winning Mom Influencer (awarded by Dr Kiran Bedi ji and felicitated at Vidhan Sabha, Delhi by Chambers of Trade & Industries.
I started my journey in 2019 when my daughter Zeeva was born. My journey from an HR Manager to an Artist Manager to a Mom Blogger.
I have studied English Literature at Delhi University and hold an MBA degree, I have worked in MNCs in Human Resources for 8 years and for 6 years as an Artist Manager (presently working too).
For me, motherhood revamped her career. “After my delivery, I thought my career was over, but I was wrong.” I never knew my career would be reinvented and shaped “online,” and I am grateful and humbled”. When my daughter was born I just couldn’t connect with her, as there was something that was bothering me – had just one question in mind, is my career over after a baby?
 I was kind of depressed and shattered, couldn’t bond with my baby easily, took me around 3-4 months to bond with my baby. From the outside, I looked happy but thus thought was killing me inside. I know a lot of moms would not even talk about it, as they feel what will society think of them, they will judge them, and label them as bad moms. I joined back my work-from-home job as an artist manager after 20 days of maternity break. Generally, moms enjoy the maternity break but for me, it was a depressing phase. My brother suggested I convert my Instagram page from a private to a public page, and after a lot of thought, I did it. He asked me to share my mom’s journey with new moms, to be moms.
After 2 years of my marriage, I convinced my father-in-law and joined as a Manager HR in an IT firm. I had this great sense of accomplishment as I’m the only woman in the entire clan to start working after marriage in my husband’s huge family Then had to leave my job when I was expecting, as wanted to avoid travel every day, but joined an artist manager work from home job.

Akshita Vohra

Fashion Influencer

I am a Fashion Content Creator based out of Chandigarh. My journey began on a WordPress blog and by promoting it on Instagram with the mere intention of staying in touch with Fashion with my Fashion design degree. Little did I know Content Creation was a career in itself. Initially, I shot for my seniors as a model for their projects and then I started posting about what I wear and the thought process behind it. The moment I started creating content regularly for the sole purpose of reaching out to the audience which was just within a few months after starting my page, I started getting work and it hasn’t stopped ever since. I have worked 3 years during my college and 1 year after that as a part-time creator but now as a full-time job for the last three years, it has been nothing short of incredible. All the luxury brands that I dreamt of once are now affordable and have bagged quite a few projects along the journey which I’m proud of.

There would be a lot of self-doubt each time the growth pace was slow Every time I tried to switch to a stable income source by pursuing influencer marketing jobs I realised this profession needed my full-time attention and that’s when it started turning out to be more fruitful. Brands worked with Forever New (featured on their Billboards too) Tata Cliq, Nykaa Fashion, Crocs, Uniqlo, Nexus Elante Mall Chandigarh, Marks & Spencer, Lakme, Dove, Madame, Amazon, Mochi etc.

Her relatives and friends look at her options and review products for childcare and personal care. She adds, “Creating content on Instagram isn’t an easy job.

Sonam Puri

Lifestyle Influencer
I started my Instagram page in 2012 after I got married but it was more about posting my travel pictures and sometimes food. It was only after I became a parent that I started to convert that page from being a photo gallery to a blog.
 I was on maternity for a year and wanted to write about my experience as a parent. I have been working since my college days, and staying home was always boring but with Coco that attitude and life changed. I never thought motherhood would be such a bliss. This bliss had several challenges as well so I planned to make people aware and inform them about solutions to those challenges.
 The most challenging is to keep going. With a full-time job and family to take care of, Instagram is an added hustle but it is something I am passionate about thus I keep going. Though there are days when I take digital breaks I come back mindfully.
