Anamika

Hi all, this is Anamika at the time of shoot she was studying M.Sc. in Molecular Biotechnology at the School of Biosceinces, University of Birmingham, UK. She happily volunteered to model for me at a very short notice. She is an avid sports person having competed in tennis under 17 category in India. Apart from playing tennis she also enjoys horse riding. She is aiming to go ahead in Biotechnology research along with her newly acquired interest in acting. She is also learning contemporary dance form. So we might see her on screen in near future. She is very talkative and a fun person to hangout and work with.
