The Green Queen was born and raised in Hong Kong to an Indian mother and French-Italian father. She received a BA in Comparative Literature and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2005, after which she has worked in a variety of fields such as finance, consulting and real estate in London, New York and Hong Kong. She has also had her own business, when she attempted to revive the Cotton Collection womenswear brand in Hong Kong.
In 2008, she was involved in the start-up of an eco-inititative for green-roof building in Hong Kong. During this period, a brand new organic consciousness burst onto her life’s stage and she became a fanatic researcher and learner of all things green, ecological, organic, natural and chemical-free. She has never looked back! She spends all her free time educating herself on how to live a kinder, cleaner and clearer life and annoying her friends and family with reasons why they too should go green!
The idea for Green Queen was born over a year ago when the name appeared to her in a dream (!) and she realized it was time to share her tips, ideas, inspirations, factoids and more with a larger audience. She hopes readers will feel the same way!
