Bradford born and bred, award-winning TV and radio presenter Anita Rani is one of the most recognisable faces on British TV. But growing up – trying to navigate her Indian world at home and the British world outside her front door – Anita was a girl who didn't fit in anywhere. How did she manage to become the powerhouse she is, whilst battling against being too white inside her home, too brown outside of it?
Join her for this exclusive virtual event as she shares the story of a girl who never fit in and the woman she became to celebrate the publication of her first memoir, The Right Sort of Girl.
In conversation, Anita will detail how she was always destined to stand out: from playing Mary in her otherwise all white nursery nativity to growing up in eighties Yorkshire with her Punjabi family, spending evenings in the factory her parents owned whilst trying to figure out how best to get rid of hair that seemed to be growing EVERYWHERE.
Fizzing with energy, hilarity and charm, Anita will share the lessons she wishes her younger self could have known. This story of a second-generation British Indian woman up north is also a tale of tenacity and a life lived with positivity and humour. If you have ever felt alone, different, or just not the right sort of girl, this is the event for you.
