On Episode #8, Rushna Ahmed and Anushree Sreedhar sit down with Trisha Sakhuja-Walia, a digital content creator and social media strategist with a knack for event planning—manages more than 100 contributors and oversees business development at BrownGirlMagazine.com. Brown Girl is a digital platform created by and for South Asian women who believe in the power of storytelling as a vehicle for community building and empowerment. With a passion for publishing meaningful content, she's always on the hunt for the next big story. Having spoken at various South Asian-led community events and forums at Columbia University, Michigan State University, and Yale University to name a few, Trisha is continuously striving to amplify the reach of Brown Girl the traditional way — word of mouth. In October 2018, she launched her newest venture — the first-ever Slashie Summit in New York City, a purpose-driven one-day summit that empowers creators and doers to challenge the stigma behind creative aspirations. Raised as an Indian-American in the suburbs of New York City, she is proud of her hyphenated identity and continues to find unique ways to empower young women living in the diaspora.
