Asian females are often overlooked and seen as incapable of doing the same things that others can, but these inspiring brown women break stereotypical boundaries and express who they are on platforms such as Instagram. From mixing Indian and western cultures in their clothing to becoming ambassadors for UNICEF, these stunning women are flaunting their Asian roots.

Rupi Kaur:

Predominantly known for her book, milk and honey, Rupi Kaur is a poet, writer and illustrator born in India who then moved to Canada. Her work expresses her time through difficulties in life and touches the hearts of many young females, leading to her book being on the New York Best Seller List for 41 weeks, reaching number one in January 2017.

Ankita Bhardwaj:

Ankita expresses her individuality and her Indian-Pakistani roots with her unique sense of style, mixing Indian and western clothing to create an enrapturing look. She is well known on Instagram for replying back to haters telling her to stop being so brown and shutting them down; as well as standing up for other brown women and giving younger girls the support that they need, because growing up, she “never felt like anyone rooted for brown women”.

Priyanka Chopra:

Winner of the 2000 Miss World pageant, Priyanka Chopra is a Bollywood and Hollywood actress, who inspires young women to reach their full potential. Her insta profile expresses her fun personality while she travels the world meeting helpless children and supporting them. Priyanka donates a tenth of her salary to NGOs, helping women's education, safety, and empowerment. As well as that, she is now also an ambassador for UNICEF, proving that brown women can accomplish the same thing as any other woman.

Rowi Singh:

With her own Instagram aesthetic, Rowi Singh primarily focuses on make-up, beauty and fashion. She has 59.5 thousand followers there, proving that you don't need to be white to be a popular beauty blogger.
