About Me: The Face Behind the Brand

Tomorrow marks the 120 days that Kundan Box has been live, and these past four months I have been able to create friendships and relationships that I did not think would be possible. It wasn’t until I had more than I care to admit customers say “sorry, didn’t catch your name” that I realized I was basically anonymous. Having missed the bandwagon on the Instagram trend of posting the face behind the brand. I thought today would be a good day to formally introduce myself and put a face to the Instagram dms.

Hi everyone,

As most of you know, my name is Anisha and I am the owner and sole employee of Kundan Box. These past couple of months have been exhilarating with a few ups and downs with the ongoing pandemic.

I am currently 25 years old and I have a Bachelors degree in Sociology from UBC. Having my own passion project isn’t something that I had envisioned for myself. Yes I had the CEO dreams that everyone has: amazing, high power position, with the car and shoes to match and taking over the world single handedly. Then I along with most others, grew up. Went through highschool, university and sat in a rut thinking about what to do after graduation. Side hustle or passion project? Maybeee in twenty or thirty years.

Fast forward to September 2019, I was getting my lashes done by Jannet (@lashedbyjannet be sure to check her out) and was commending her on taking the risk and starting her own business; while being a student and working part time. I apprehensively told Jannet my idea; I had heard of other Indian subscription box companies, but between the horror stories or the inaccessibility of boxes that were catered to Americans, I found there was a huge hole in the market for Canadians.

After that appointment, I had my lashes done, and knew my company name, and was on a mission to find wholesalers. From November to February, I was got caught up in Graduation, Christmas, and quietly starting Kundan Box which brings us to now!

Some quick facts about me:

  • I love sushi and pizza (or any carb for that matter)
  • Chaa is life
  • I’m 5’0
  • Sucker for rom-coms
  • Suits on Netflix is my go to show
  • Cactus > Earls
  • White nails > every other colour (it’s honestly a problem at this point. The lady at the salon always says “Nisha, pick a colour, no white”)

I cautiously asked my friends how they would describe me, and have chosen to share the following:

  • Planner
  • Meticulous
  • Funny
  • Caring
  • Adventurous
  • Easy-Going
  • Friendly
  • Honest

I feel like I need to send thank you notes to my friends 😭

Throughout this quarantine, I have been binging on Netflix. Some of the series I have finished are:

  • Jane the Virgin –> this was the most frustrating show I have watched, though it did make for some good twitter content
  • Modern Family –> after seeing episodes here and there, I’m glad I was able to watch the entire series consecutively
  • Never Have I Ever –> was so relatable, despite the 8 year age gap difference
  • Family Karma (Hulu) –> Anisha was my favourite 😂😉
  • Keeping up with the Kardashians (Hulu) –> my go-to makeup look is now a brown smokey eye for the summer

So now that I have revealed myself as a Netflix addict, here are a few of my other hobbies

  • Hiking
  • Organizing (Marie Kondo is revolutionary and brings me joy)
  • Cooking
  • Shopping (that counts right? Except I’m that one person who isn’t a fan of online shopping with the exception of Amazon)

Well that’s me in a nutshell. Hope that helps since I’m not trying to be anonymous!

As always you have any questions feel free to send us a dm @kundanbox on Instagram or email us at info@kundanbox.com

Happy Subscribing!

Anisha
