Join the movement to support diversity in commercial content and go see this week’s #goldopen #blindedbythelight When I was growing up there were exactly two characters in mainstream media that looked like me, Princess Jasmine and Mogli... and they were both cartoons😜. Look how far we have come and how far we still have to go to make commercial films representative of our new global culture. As a child of immigrants and a proud American I found myself relating to not just one culture but bits and pieces of all the cultures that surrounded me. The music of @beyonce, @eltonjohn, the books of Enid Blyton, the humor of Lucille Ball, the clay crafts and dolls my #Korean friends taught me to play with, and the food of my #Iranian best friend. We must embrace the global culture we are now a part of and support content that will allow the next generation to be inspired by stories from all corners of this world so that our kids can grow up not a color or gender... but a community of humans. Happy to support @goldhouseco in their efforts to help with a small part of this great movement with this month’s #goldopen to support the box office success of “majority” driven content like this gem by @gurinder.chadha “Blinded by the Light”. If we want more diversity in content, women leads, and stories like this then we have to start doing one thing... showing up for the content we want more of 🎥. If you wish to sponsor a theater at a future #goldoopen please let me know!
Blueprint: “You got to believe in yourself more than anyone believes in anything”. @erikmilesre Had the pleasure of watching one of my best friends be embraced by the world as the star we always knew he was two weeks ago at the premiere of the newest #realestate show on #vh1 @loveandlistings Swipe left for his advice to entrepreneurs!

Now I know you all are all very, very busy this weekend at the theater watching all our new releases I spent the week posting about...🎥 😂 but allow me add one more film to your list. This film is not ours but has captured my heart. This man right here @zacharygottsagen has the best comedic timing I’ve seen on screen in quite sometime. It was a pleasure attending his premiere of his latest film @peanutbutterfalcon last week. It’s an absolute must see for any of you who set out on this journey of filmmaking 🎥 to fill your audiences hearts with joy ❤️ Congrats to @zacharygottsagen, #ShiaLeBeouf , @dakotajohnson, @tylernilson and to my good friends at @armoryfilms #ChrisLeMole and @timzaj for creating something truly special. Thanks for including me in your night!
No matter how long I work in this industry walking into the @chinesetheatres will never get old 🎥 The grand opening of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on May 18, 1927, was the most spectacular theatre opening in motion picture history. Thousands of people lined Hollywood Boulevard and a riot broke out as fans tried to catch a glimpse of the movie stars and other celebrities as they arrived for the opening. This historic place has been home to so many dreamers and visionaries! So many years of movie making history. P.S. Go see @thekitchenmovie this wknd! Comes out today! #BRONCreative

Proper night of theater with this one @meta2meta ❤️ Caught the latest work from the fabulous director #SamMendes #TheLehmanTrilogy while in London. The Lehman Trilogy is a three-act play by Italian dramatist Stefano Massini. A history of Lehman Brothers, it was originally conceived as a radio play. The history of how the financial industry was birth and built (almost by accident) was fascinating. #AdamGodly you are my hero after seeing this! His acting range (along his cast mates #SimonRussellBeale #BenMiles ) INSANE! #storiesaremylovelanguage #supportthearts
Welcome to #Cowdray Park! Recognized worldwide as the home of #British #Polo . The stories this field could tell! The game of polo has been played at Cowdray for close on a century – the first competitive tournaments being recorded in 1910. My grandfather played polo and learning the game was one of the first things I did when I moved to Los Angeles. I love the historical context and cultural significance it has to so many global communities. Had the pleasure of watching Dubai battle it out against Hong Kong for the #KingPowerGoldCup last week with my favorite polo fans in West Sussex on these historical grounds! Post World War II this park was pivotal in bringing back the sport and in turn joy to the countryside. John Cowdray went as far as to loan all his ponies to players to try and help bring morale and spirit back to his countrymen.
Had a beautiful time in England celebrating the cornerstone to this family getting married to one of our favorite gentlemen of all time. This couples warmth, love, and sense of family has held us together as a group for so many years and we are grateful everyday for the foundation you provide each of us. Never been happier to dance all night to celebrate two individuals, their union, and their love. Congrats @christiantoraldo @tamsin_lonsdale. Cheers to many more memories 🥂!
Pretty sure they could run the world. 🌎👧🏻✈️ @thesupperclub @golgolee @maebrunken
Hollywood 🎥 was sparkling last night thanks to this one! Happy birthday @maebrunken 🥂❤️ #growingdown
Roar !!! 🐯 Been heads down on a creative binge these last few days. There are these micro moments that happen when I look at myself in the mirror and am filled with gratitude for the process of growing into my own skin and really fully loving things about myself that I once used to hate... like these lion curls! It may seem little but to me these moments are the real growth... and they 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧 𝐬𝐨 𝐌𝐔𝐂𝐇. This holiday weekend my wish for each of you is that you look in the mirror at how far you’ve come... at your story 🎥reflecting back at you... and that no matter where you are in your journey, you give credit to that person in the mirror and how far they have come... and that you smile.
Guess who hit a new max this week! 70kg 154 lbs. 💪🏻. I started this journey a year ago lifting only 20kg or 44 lbs. Strength is as much a mental exercise as a physical one. When I was 15 I shattered my knee while mid air at a dance audition. As all my childhood plans to dance my way through life evaporated as the doctor gave me a death sentence: I might never gain full mobility back in that knee. I could not let that be a reality. 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐓𝐑𝐘. I spent the rest of my freshman year of high school being home schooled by a tutor in order to attend the 6-8 hours of PT a day. I was a soft child before I broke my knee. I would flinch when a ball came towards me in gym class and I hated doctors and needles or any kind of pain. I always wanted to 𝐓𝐑𝐘 everything but was 𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙛𝙞𝙚𝙙 to 𝐅𝐀𝐈𝐋. But the idea that I would never be able to do the things I loved pushed me to lean into my pain and my fears. I survived things I never thought I could ever survive that year because I pushed myself to 𝐓𝐑𝐘. If I never danced again I at least didn’t want it to be my fault. I went racing back to school by the end of the year down playing my injury on crutches, determined to not stand out. By the next fall I was running. To get out of the death sentence of having to go alone to physical therapy everyday I bargained with my doctor for permission to train with our high schools field hockey team. They ran 3 miles a morning and their training consisted of a lot of plyometrics as did my PT. The doctor okayed it and in the fall, unbeknownst to my peers I was struggling but keeping up with them as a “honorary team member”. My injury changed me. Now I lean into fear, I lean into challenges, and as a result I lean into possibility. Had you told me I would be able to lift this much a year ago I would have never believed you. Sometimes all you have to do to 𝒂𝒄𝒉𝒊𝒆𝒗𝒆 the 𝒖𝒏𝒃𝒆𝒍𝒊𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 is 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩 𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙥 and 𝐓𝐑𝐘. I may not always succeed but I’ll never be the girl who didn’t at least try. What will you try today? Where will you be in a year? Tag someone and let’s grow! #thatsmystorywhatsyours 🤷🏻♀
@naeemkhannyc making me feel like an Indian princess at the @goldhouseco #a100 awards 🎥 last month. Always fun when I get to dress up and celebrate all the hard work and contributions our community puts in to making content. Can’t get over this look. This was especially special because the night celebrated Asian and South Asian contributions to entertainment and I got to wear 2 designers of such heritage. My dress was by Naeem and my diamonds were by Korea. Designer @maisonlouella who accompanied me that night! Love their cultural influence on modern couture. 👗 @naeemkhannyc 💎 @maisonlouella

This family is the best. I will never forget the smell of the hardcover books my father used to read to me each night. Their covers creaked as he gingerly opened them and I could smell the must of their history. They had been his growing up and had traveled over oceans as his most prized possessions to end up on my nightstand. My father raised me on unabridged versions of “Black Beauty” and “Sherlock Holmes”. He would read to me each night pausing patiently every other word to explain what the expansive vocabulary meant to his then 7 year old daughter. Our dinners were filled with culinary adventures as him and my mother took turns mixing the various cultural cuisines of the world together into fusion adventures and inventing new dishes. Music was an everyday lesson as he blasted his favorites while manning the grill. Each track came with a full history lesson and story about his past: The Beatles, B.B. King, Tab Benoit, Eric Clapton, Jethro Tull, Prince. No trip to NYC was without a visit to broadway or a dash into a piano bar. My drawers still to this day are filled with clipping carefully folded with handwritten notes “Pay attention to this- Love Papa” from all your favorite publications: The Economist, The Atlantic, The Financial Times and a stack of ancient Reader’s Digest which you sent me every month for 10 years is stacked in the corner of my childhood room. Thank you for all the trips to the library and blockbuster and for making me watch all the classics and every Oscar nominated film. I’ll never forget you fast forwarding through “The English Patient” skipping all the adult parts so your three little girls would be exposed to director Anthony Minghella’s academy award winning work. The education you provides each of us was far better than we could have ever received at any school. Happy father’s day to the glue that holds it all together- my jazz loving, oldies singing, musical fanatic of a father who taught me to love the classics. @drrajankamath . . . . . #familyfirst #picoftheday #storyteller #familyphoto #writer #happy #familylove #kids #story #familylife #familygoals #photooftheday #photography #familytime
I’m incredibly blessed to be surrounded by a community of creative entrepreneurs that are constantly striving to do better for this world and teaching me new things. One of our best friends @golgolee is no exception. Her boutique @brigitteandstone offers vegan cruelty free and sustainable clothing and as someone who is constantly searching for clothing that is elegant, feminine, but classy for day to night ease with work 🎥 I am always grateful to have her in my corner. According to a submission from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, in 2015 the global fashion industry generated 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent and millions of animals were hurt or harmed in the pursuit of high fashion. I am no saint when it comes to my choices in the past but I will definitely try to be more aware thanks to @golgolee educating me towards changing our future. #furballlove . . . . . #selfcare #photography #crueltyfree #fashion #photooftheday #cute #natural #beautiful #picoftheday #happy #animals #organic #animal #beauty #love #healthy #pets #vegan #makeup #naturalskincare #nature #pet
Where my ladies at America? This question is directed towards all of us... not just the females. Every time I’m invited to speak about my industry 🎥 at anything finance related I am astounded that I am still one of the only females in the room. Did you know ONLY 11% of decision-makers at US-based venture capital firms over $25M are women (excludes healthcare firms and corporate VCs)? Inevitably when I sit on these finance panels someone asks me the age old hot topic “me too” question: What is it like to be a female in a male driven industry? I hate that question. I am a young professional in a competitive industry. Yes I’m female and yes I’m in the “minority” but it’s time to change the face of what we as a society consider as normal. Ask me why it’s important that we have more female or minority leaders, ask me how your bottom line will change if you support diversity initiatives, ask me about the spending power of minority or female demographics but “what is it like to be a female in a male driven industry?” COME ON!!!!!! Truth is I love being “one of the boys” because THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD BE. I am a professional on a finance panel. And just like the smart humans beside me I am here for a reason. And I have plenty to say. PS follow my friends at @allraiseorg who gave me the stat above! They are fighting hard to change the face the landscape in PE in the tech industry...maybe I can I convince them to come help me in these other industries as well ❤️#dontaskmecauseimfemale . . . . . #womenwhohustle #femaleentrepreneur #girlbosses #womensupportingwomen #ladyboss #bossbabe #shemeansbusiness #venturecapital #beingboss #entrepreneur #beyourownboss #femalepreneur #womeninbusiness #womenempowerment #businesschicks #womenwhowork #girlbosslife #girlboss #communityovercompetition #motivation #womenwithambition #femalebusinessowner #womeninbiz #entrepreneurlife #hersuccess #business #bossbabetribe #bosslady
