Raised in North Carolina, Hrishika Muthukrishnan spent 18 years thinking there wasn’t much to the suburbs before she discovered how much her hometown had to offer her. When she is not finding new ways to upgrade and style her wardrobe, she engages in passion projects related to mental health. She believes in the cathartic power of self-expression and its large impact on the mind and body. Her guilty pleasures include reading medieval fantasy romance novels, photographing seemingly meaningless things, and collecting vinyl records she rarely listens to. With her personal experiences and her unique outlook on life, she hopes to inspire others to carve out their own paths and defy stereotypes of every kind.
