    As an avid writer, Nandini Balakrishnan is passionate about topics of discrimination, feminism and other societal issues. She wanted to be able to voice out her opinions in a way that would be informative and entertaining so she added the element of HUMOUR! A few years later, Nandini has become a household name as her videos have caught on virality numerous times.

    This opinionated beauty who has a signature Malaysian Indian accent serves hard hitting points that left many in agreement and others, re-evaluating their moral stand. Nandini covers a wide variety of issues like colour biases and ‘white-worshipping’. She was recently interviewed on a talkshow in BBC about one of her videos that discussed ‘beg-packing’ in Malaysia.

    Nandini, who aspires to be a war correspondent, continues to be an inspiration to many young women to celebrate their authenticity.
