I’m Sweta Srivastava Vikram, a best-selling author of 12 books and a believer in the power of stories. I am an award-winning, wellness-oriented digital storyteller writing hopeful stories about multiculturalism and women’s issues with a healthy dose of suspense, wellness, reflection, food, and travel. My work has appeared in The New York Times amongst other places. Voted as “One of the Most Influential Asians of Our Times,” and winner of the “Voices of The Year” award (past recipients have been Chelsea Clinton and the founders of Women’s March), I am also a creative coach and a holistic health counselor helping people write and share purposeful stories from a mindful place and also transform their lives. Raised between North Africa and the foothills of the Himalayas, I now live and work in New York City.
