The very dashing young business leader, Ananya Birla recently bagged the AIESEC Youth Leadership Award!
At the age of 17, Ananya Birla, daughter of Aditya Birla Group Chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla and philanthropist Neerja Birla decided to ignore the weight of her surname and followed her heart by starting her own microfinance company called Svantantra Microfinance.
Since then, she has gone on to become an active campaigner of mental health besides launching her own e-commerce venture, Curocarte. But, she isn’t done.
One would think she would take it easy for a while after what she’s managed to achieve at such an young age; but Ananya Birla continues to surprise.
Now 22, she is making waves in her new avatar- a popstar.
She recently launched her debut international single — ‘Livin’ the life’ — at a grand event in Mumbai, and says that she would love to work with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The track — a mix of pop and EDM — mixed by Dutch DJ Afrojack, has Ananya as the co-writer and composer with American producer Jim Beanz.
