What does Manrika do?
Manrika is both a recruitment consultant and content creator, and outlined what she aims to achieve by appearing on The Circle.
She shared: “My parents and family are very westernised but it’s the wider society, the way that I live isn’t the expectation of what an Indian girl should be.
“I’m going on to show that you can still live your life, have that social media lifestyle and also be a respectable girl.”
Manrika added: “I’m probably going to get a lot of stick for it from the wider Indian community but I just want to help other people and I want Indian parents to watch the way that I conduct myself and know what sort of lifestyle I have and think ‘maybe my daughter can go out and do that’.”
