Just got nominated for my performance as Anjana in
The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program!
2019 Audio Verse Awards
Goodbye, Up! A Great Bird Adventure!
It’s true: Disney is the place where dreams come true.
I never had the privilege growing up to see someone who looked like me on a Disney platform. Never did I think I’d get to create and play Disney’s first Indian princess!
Thank you for showing me that a princess can get her hands dirty. That you can honour and share one’s culture and heritage through many forms. That a woman can be intelligent and funny. That a woman can be a leader and do anything she sets her mind to. That in the current state of the world, as a Person of Colour, showing kindness and educating people is of utmost importance.
How does one say goodbye to character you have poured your heart and soul to?
All I can promise you is that I will continue to fight for representation and diversity. To share OUR stories.
You have inspired so many people and children- especially little brown girls.
Oh, little brown girls... You gave me the gift of seeing your eyes light up, of seeing my 4 year old self in you.
Thank you Walt Disney World. Thank you Animal Kingdom. Thank you Pixar. Thank you Up! A Great Bird Adventure
Thank you, Anika.
I'm excited to announce that I'll be voicing Anjana in the Lovecraftian horror and black comedy: The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program:
An RPG Audio Drama. Find it on your favorite podcast app and succumb to the maddening call... of CTHULHU!
Catch me playing Anika
in the new show ‘Up! A Great Bird Adventure’
with Russell & Dug
Disney World's Animal Kingdom!
