Abha Malpani was born in India, has lived in England, has graduated from Australia, and has worked in Dubai. After a 4-year working spell in film production, advertising, and public relations in Dubai, she quit her job to live in Spain, learn Spanish and write. After almost 3 years in Spain (Valencia/Madrid), she is now back in hot-old Dubai.
Immersing herself in different cultures and traveling is her adrenaline, and so far she has learned to dance Son in Cuba, braided her hair in Jamaica, lived in a tribal village in Thailand, and driven across Portugal.
Abha was a professional blogger at Gadling, Vagablogging, PlanetEye, Gridskipper, and Globorati; she is editor at travel-writing blog Written Road. She graduated in marketing and management from University of Wollongong in Australia, has a diploma in news writing and journalism from the London School of Journalism, and a certification in Spanish as a second language.
Her latest obsession is new media and how it’s manifesting through the core of society and business. Which is why she quit her Vermuth drinking life in Madrid and has moved back to Dubai to work as a Social Media Consultant. (oooooooo)
Salsa-dancing keeps her sane and she hopes that one day she will know the purpose of her life. No, seriously.
