When we picture an image of an Indian woman the shy, orthodox, and traditional kind of woman comes to our mind. But time flies and there are more definitions for a classy woman. She is independent, brave, and courageous. Diipa Khosla is one such strong independent woman who dared to dream big. She is the first Indian influencer to walk the Cannes Film Festival. She says that if anyone told her that one day she would address the British House of Commons on International Women Day she would never believe that, but now she is living in her dreams.

She has millions of followers all over the world but she says the word 'influencer' is misused at times as she prefers to be called a new age digital celebrity because she believes that an influencer is someone who makes a social change. She is TED Speaker and its obvious that she bought a social change in her way. She has also worked with various NGO'S spreading awareness about anti-racism and female empowerment. She completed a bachelor's degree in international human rights law and moved to London to pursue masters. It is during that time she got herself an internship at a fashion agency in London. It turned out to be Europe's first influencer agency. All the influencers came from the US and Europe and she decided to represent India. She started working and in three years she had 1.1 million followers and she also posed several international magazines, walked at Cannes and Venice Film Festivals. She says that her constant hard work and perseverance helped her achieve these goals.

She also faced many obstacles. She had to overcome discrimination based on the color of the skin and her gender. She was rejected to attend London Fashion Week because of her skin tones!!.She was totally against sexism. Besides a fashion and beauty influencer, she also worked for women's empowerment. In 2019, she was recognized as "The Changemaker Influencer of 2019". She also set up the post for Change Foundation in 2019. She says that influencers should focus on building their community. She is currently doing a psychological course online along with ith meditation, fitness, and cooking courses. She also has another dream of building a big beautiful family. She is an example of an ideal woman who plays an important role in the socio-economic development of the society. Let's make Indian women self-sufficient, financially independent, and brave apart from their mother's role.
