Mira Saraf

Mira Saraf was born in Canada, grew up in New Delhi, and went to a British School half her life, and an American school the other half which has, as a result, made her grammar and spellings decidedly confused. She spent 15 years in the United States and Canada, with a short stint in Italy in between, and returned to India in 2013. She now works in sales and marketing for a family business and lives in Mumbai.
