WOMEN TO WATCH 2017 – Anjali Lama

Anjali Lama

Transgender Model

Only you know what you are capable of so push hard, stay focused and sooner or later you will have your day.

Anjali Lama started a career in modelling seven years ago. It was tough… she had to fight for acceptance first for her identity as a transgender model and second as a serious professional. The rejections and humiliation are now too many to remember; Anjali was often broken but always undefeated. Today she is recognised as the first Nepali transgender model to have also made it international. The turning point was the Lakme India Fashion Week. She lives between Kathmandu and Mumbai and was recently covered by the coveted Elle magazine.
