I am a 22-year-old freelance writer and journalist, now based in London. I grew up between New York, Singapore, and India – all of which influence my work in their own ways. 

I graduated with a degree in English Literature from Durham University. I am now pursuing a degree in Digital Media at UCL.

I write about everything from identity, politics, business, culture, art, technology, and what matters most to me. I have had personal essays published in The New York Times, Huffington Post India, and Slate Magazine. I was previously an intern at VICE Asia, and my work during that time has been published across VICE editions globally – including the UK, Australia, France and India. You can access my full VICE archives here. I have also contributed to The Independent, Vogue India, Elle India, i-D, gal-dem, and Dazed Digital, amongst others. 

I can be reached at meeranavlakha@gmail.com (always looking to be commissioned and am open to project ideas!) You can also find me on LinkedInTwitter and Instagram.
