I met a young woman in 2001 who had a sparkle in her eye, who I realized was hard working, talented, dedicated, and had a vision. I knew that she was someone special. I was working at Omni and we wound up working together. Something impressed me about her right from the beginning and that was that she had vision and she had big ideas. That person was Raj Girn.

She has not only taken that job title seriously, but she has become a one-woman mega house by specializing in Media, Marketing & Public Relations. We have had the chance to be a corporate partner with ANOKHI MEDIA lead by Raj, and have been fortunate enough to increase our platform within the South Asian market just by partnering with this organization.
This helps elevate our brand along with providing the strategic vision that Raj has set out for her media empire, along with numerous events organized and coordinated by her. We have constantly returned as a partner due to the lucrative positive results that came out of our partnership.

Senior PR/Communications Professional
Over the years, I’ve always been an admirer of Raj Girn’s many entrepreneurial accomplishments, her business savviness and grace. She’s a natural born leader and has earned a stellar reputation as a businesswoman who knows how to successfully and strategically take a business/brand to the next level.

She’s a powerful combination of a creative and innovative thinker, who has the ability to quickly and effectively cut through the clutter and get to the heart of the matter.
I fondly remember my first one-on-one meeting with her over lunch a few years ago. I was so impressed by her industry know-how and forward-thinking on our respective industries. She was fearless and took calculated risks – which, I highly respect. I recall leaving the lunch feeling energized and inspired by her and ready to take on new ventures. Raj is the real deal.
Growth x Content Leader
Think Start Inc.
There are very few people in the world who can pull off what Raj has been able to do with her various media properties. She is a 'committed to the cause' type of professional and has been one of the only original voices from within the South Asian media scene who has taken her vision globally without the need of anyone's validation or permission. On her terms, Raj has not only built platforms for creators, but she has provided opportunities for businesses that have not had the luxury of experiencing the real value of the various voices in the diaspora by showing them. I look forward to generations studying the impact she has had as a leader and as an exemplary human.
Raj is an inspiration to so many of us, motivated by her example of successful entrepreneurship, cultural influence, personal charisma and clear success. She carries herself with an undeniable, generous confidence. She continues to be a leader in the ways in which she expands her reach, and most importantly, teaches others to do the same. I am grateful for how she has blazed a trail as a pioneer in south-asian Canadian media, so that others know it is possible for us to find our own way forward.
I had known Raj from a previous role and had lost touch over the years! And we started our conversation, going to back to our first interactions - Raj hasn't changed over the years - the same passion, yearning, and positivity. The podcast itself was very well organized, relevant questions and we covered a lot of ground. As a future podcast host as well, one key element that I admire about Raj is how she intersperses her commentary based on the guest's responses and her segue's to a new topic! Inspiring!
It was such a pleasure and honour to be interviewed by Raj. She was well-informed, naturally curious, incredibly warm and fun. It's evident that Raj has a vast amount of experience interviewing others due to her professionalism and the types of questions she asks. She was easy to talk to, which made the conversation natural and allowed me to feel vulnerable. Raj is an absolute powerhouse, inspiration and mentor. I would recommend that anyone who has the opportunity to work with her, do so!

I am honoured to be working with you and look forward to our journey as I unfold as an entrepreneur.
Through Raj's coaching, I have become more aware of my actions and through that awareness, I know I will achieve my own greatness. Truly learning from the best!
