Hi, I'm Aksara
I was born in London, I grew up in and now live in Cambridge. I aspire to retire somewhere with a sense of community, at least 300 days of sunshine every year, and vast beaches and woodlands - New Zealand perhaps if it wasn’t so far.
In my opinion, the top 3 things which make a great team are
3. Respect for one another.
If I could swap places with anybody in the world, for one day - it would be Hm maybe Richard Branson because he's an innovator, entrepreneur, adventurer, and his humanitarian work… Let's not fail to mention Virgin Galactic, I mean come on.
My all-time favourite quote/ saying is "Life can only be understood backward, but it must be lived forwards" - Soren Kierkegaard.
When I am not working, you'll find me in my hammock, experimenting in the kitchen or at a yoga class.
The best concert I ever attended was Watch the Throne - Kanye & Jay Z.
The most magical place that I have ever traveled to is The Whitsunday Islands, although my all-time favourite place will always be Mexico, I’ve been 3 times and it’s still always on my list of places to go!
Before I die I will visit as many (if not all) of the Micronesian, Melanesian and Polynesian islands.
The store that I am most likely to max out my credit card in, is somewhere super random - House of Intuition maybe, or Wholefoods. An annoying hipster plant store.
When I was a kid, my favourite toy was my siblings. You'd always find us building tents, secret rooms, and businesses out of duvet covers, and inventing new games. We were born creators.
You won't find anybody else that is less patient than me
If I were an animal I would be a Koala because they hug trees and sleep for 22 hours per day - if that’s not me, I don’t know what is.
The person that inspires me the most is my mum. She is the most selfless person I have ever met.
Every single day I am grateful for all that I have.
