Anjali Daryanani

Growing up, Anjali tread happily across many different cultural lines, picking up pieces along the way. In Hong Kong, she brew a passion for rugby. In India (and Montreal), she matured her spiritual and introspective persona. In South East Asia, she developed humility, inspired by people who would give without regard for what they would get in return.

The journey continues in Washington DC, where Anjali is working to create systemic social change through education. She graduated cum laude from Georgetown University with a degree in Foreign Service, and now works for One World Youth Project, an education not-for-profit that links schools around the world to foster cross cultural understanding among youth. Anjali hopes to engage kids and teenagers in impactful international experiences, especially those who don't have the resources to travel abroad.

Anjali's goals for the year include improving her photography and video-editing skills. If you're interested to collaborate with Anjali on any level, please do send her an email at She looks forward to catching you on the flip side.

"Hey. Could we do that again? I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant. You know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. "Here's your change." "Paper or plastic?' "Credit or debit?" "You want ketchup with that?" I don't want a straw. I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be ant, you know?" -"Waking Life"
