“I love singing Caity Peters’ Jealous while driving and Pink is my current favourite.

I find happiness in music and expressing myself through music and fashion. I am drawn to anything vintage. I value kindness. I love rain, writing songs, and our mother earth. “

Tell me something about yourself.
I’m a science student and just an everyday girl who loves reading, food, and clothes.

Do you have a favorite book and what are you currently reading?
I read mostly bad boy stories from Wattpad. So no favourites really.
Currently reading ‘I sold myself to the devil for Vinyls, Pitiful I know’. It’s not as cliché as it sounds.

Are there any words or phrases that you use the most?
‘Oh my God!’, ‘Like seriously?’ I gasp at almost everything.

What’s the best part about your life in Kohima?
The weather!


2015. Dimapur, Nagaland.
