Help Anamika follow her food dream

Ask for an update


Hello! I am Anamika from Chennai, Tamilnadu currently pursuing my dream in Food Design in Milan, Italy. Its a one-year masters course in food design and innovation where I learn about sustainability, food systems, system design and food futures. This dream of mine was made possible with the support of my parents and this story is about them. Both my parents have been social workers for over 20 years helping with women, girl children and the government school system in Tamil Nadu. Being social workers is not an easy job and being parents of two daughters is no less. They have always given the best to us even when it seems impossible.

 I graduated from my undergrad in 2014 and started working as a Graphic Designer. Last year I decided to quit of job and explore my passion in food. At the age of 25, many people thought I was not in my right senses to take this step. Most adults wanted me to get married and settle down. My parents had the concern as well but never put me or my dream down. My mom put her entire life saving so that I can pursue my dream. So at times, I wonder if it's all worth. I am doing my level best at exceeding in what I do to make them proud. Though they are giving all that they can to keep me happy, I cant share that feeling if they are living in stress to provide the same. 

It is a real struggle when they have to give me money to make sure I live my dream to the fullest, while they make so many sacrifices.  
I am trying to find my ways to help my parents support me without giving their life to me. I am sure I will make them and you proud of my dream in food. I would like your help in supporting my parents in aiding my dream. I believe my dream is not a selfish passion and I will one day shine through what I have I am gaining through this journey.

Thank you, for taking the time to read my story. If you would like to know more about what I am doing (my dream) or other ways in which you would like to offer help, you can mail me at
