Anya Rawla is a first-generation member of the South Asian diaspora and LGBTQ2S+ community. From theatre stage management to professional makeup artistry, she has always been drawn to the intersection of performance and what lies beyond the curtain. In contrast to her backstage roles, she is also a front-of-house specialist and recognizes that people are integral to the success of an organization. In 2017, she completed her associate certificate in Human Resources Management, and she is currently working towards her diploma in Accounting at BCIT. She is looking forward to applying her experience to support both diversity in the arts and safe spaces in the events industry.
