Years ago, my dream of working at the United Nations crumbled after realizing I couldn’t afford to attend American University, where I had been accepted into their Honors College. I remember feeling absolutely gutted and resentful that we didn’t have the funds to afford the university I worked so hard to get admitted into.
I quickly applied to Penn State and eventually earned my Bachelors in Sociology and Spanish. All the while indulging in my love for beauty, fashion and advocacy online. Little did I know my online passions would blossom into a career.
Fast forward to now, I am speaking at the United Nations, for the second time this year. I have been able to use my platform and my voice to work with them in meaningful ways and speak up about refugees, immigration, tolerance, and how to use your platform for social good. Remember when I thought my dreams to work with the United Nations were crushed?
If you ever feel like your dreams are out of reach because a door is closed in front of you, I encourage you to remember my story. I will never forget when a member of the UN told me that I could have an even deeper impact working with the United Nations now than if my original plan came to life.
Sometimes we don’t get what we want, in the way we want it, when we want it. And that’s okay. Because we will always get what is meant for us. What is meant for you will always find it’s way to you. If life isn’t responding to your desires in the exact way you envision, do not lose hope. Have faith and keep going. God has a plan for you that is beyond what you could imagine for yourself.
I am now living all of my dreams out loud. I am blessed to be able to advocate for causes I believe in and help build bridges of understanding in an often divided world. I wouldn’t be here without you and I hope my story encourages you to keep going. The best is yet to come.
The beauty of blending together in an intercultural marriage is having the opportunity to add more traditions, customs and wonder into each other’s lives.
Every Eid, Seth is the first one ready in his traditional South Asian attire with gifts in hand to distribute to all of my nieces and nephews.
Every Christmas, I am the first one ready to decorate the tree and build gingerbread houses and watch the Grinch. And as you can tell, I have the time of my life doing it all. 🙈✨

In my new show, The Bright Fight we set up a talking mirror in the middle of Venice Pier and asked people about their relationship with the mirror. Here is one of my favorite moments from the show. 💜

Being in Paris I remember feeling so insecure about my body. Amongst what seemed like perfection everywhere, I felt almost embarrassed of my imperfection.
On the last night, I remember putting this dress on and feeling sooo beautiful. There was something so stunning about the silhouette, the bright color on the silky neon fabric, and the perfect fit on my body hugging every curve.
Sometimes confidence comes naturally. Sometimes it takes work. And sometimes you just need the right outfit to remind you that you are an imperfect masterpiece. 💛✨

I just wanted some Aloo Curry & Seth delivered.
Meet Curry & Aloo, the newest members of our family. 💛
I miss basic phone selfies. So this is a basic phone selfie. I want to post more like this because going back to the basics is refreshing sometimes. And also because life is too short to worry about making everything Instagrammable and goalsy. You are goals. With your hair like it is, wearing what you like taking a selfie with your phone before heading out the door. That’s goals. So here I am.

Grateful for fairytale moments like this. Surrounded by people we love and a power couple we are inspired by (hi @jerrodblandino and jeremy) and feeling absolutely unworthy of our blessings. We are just two small town kids consumed by the love we have for each other and for the world. To be here today is proof that anyone can reach their dreams and that love is the most powerful and unifying force. Thank you all for believing in us and our love. This year, we are most thankful for you. 💛✨
