Aakanksha Agarwal


Aakanksha is an experienced wine, travel, and lifestyle writer from India. Whether it be scribbling poems in the back of math books, or editing the school paper, she’s always been enraptured by the written word. She studied Fashion Communication in Mumbai and worked as a celebrity stylist for Bollywood. Even then, she moonlit as a writer. She now lives in Seattle with her scientist-husband and baby boy and has transitioned (happily!) to writing full-time. She lives to tell stories and for her baby’s hysterical laughs. She loves to cook (and eat!) and is the kind of person who'd order the spiciest item at a Thai restaurant, even if she has to chase it with copious amounts of Thai iced tea after. On a typical day, you’d find her curled up on the couch with a glass of Viognier in one hand and a dog-eared copy of modern mythology in the other. Fun fact: She’s a trained graphologist and can tell what your handwriting says about you!
