When she was a little girl living in Tokyo, Anchita Ghosh liked to stay behind after school and help her teacher clean up the classroom. When she was at home, she liked to help her mother cook. Her mother practiced professional Indian massage, and Anchita liked to pick up the towels, put away the oils and change the sheets after each client left. She seemed destined for a life that would be happily and quietly spent in domesticity.

Not so. Born to an Indian family and brought up in Tokyo, Anchita went on holiday one year with her parents and brothers to Australia. She fell in love with the country. She couldn't put it out of mind.

As she was approaching graduation from the American School in Japan, she decided to apply to enter a university in Australia. She was accepted by Griffith University, and two years ago went to live and study in Brisbane.
