She joins Ara on this week’s episode of #TheTamilCreator to discuss the impact that other Tamil DJs had on her including the late DJ Brown Soul & DJ Divsa (@djdivsa), solely relying on Instagram and word-of-mouth as her marketing tools, being a proud feminist and aspiring to trail-blaze a path for other Tamil women, her firm belief that everything happens for a reason, and much more.
