TARA BEDI, 29
Public Policy And Community Outreach For Instagram In India
As part of my role at Instagram, I drive our programmatic efforts to amplify all the things that we care about as a company. We recently did a programme called #TodayIMet, where we had 17 teenagers from Delhi who represent different cultural, regional and faith backgrounds, interact with each other and through the process of photography and visual storytelling, break down barriers and build empathy for people with different backgrounds and experiences.
Freedom to me means. Having a voice. One of things I love about my work is the joy of discovering the immense capacity of Indian creators. As someone that feels more like a global citizen, the 70th year of independence is a moment to think about being Indian and celebrate it as one of things that makes me, but also part of a very large group.
In a world with complete freedom. I would have been a fearless traveller.
I am always inspired. By the incredible creative and visual voices that I discover every day through Instagram. Be it artists and illustrators, sustainable merchandise and clothing, professions drawn from passions, or decadent food experiences.
