My name is Anila Karunakar and my pronouns are She, her, hers. My identity encompasses so many cultures and traditions. Born in India, grew up in Bahrain, and call Iowa home (here in America). I have worked in Diversity and Inclusion in Higher Educational institutions for over 17 years. I enjoy cooking, watching shows that make me laugh, and all things Bollywood! My favorite board game is Cranium and my favorite food is Japchae (Korean). I would like to visit South Africa. 2022 has given me the space to learn how to play the Ukulele (not very well!).
