Anita was born in Singapore of Indian parents, moved to Hong Kong at the age of two, and lived in Hong Kong most of her life. Because of her background and British education, she is multilingual and grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect simultaneously; she later learned French at school. Anita often refers to the challenges of her childhood as a racial and religious minority, and how that experienced shaped her as an adult.
Anita had been working in the corporate world for many years before being diagnosed with cancer in April 2002. Her fascinating and moving near-death experience in early 2006 tremendously changed her perspective on life; her work is now ingrained with the depths and insights she gained while in another dimension. As a result of her near-death experience, Anita is often invited to speak at conferences and events around the globe to share her insights. She’s a frequent speaker at medical conferences and Universities, particularly for their department of behavioral sciences, speaking on topics such as dealing with terminal illness, facing death, and the psychology of spiritual beliefs.
World-renowned author, Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote the foreword to Anita’s book and invited her to appear on his public television special, “Wishes Fulfilled,” which airs nationwide in the United States.
Following the international success of her book, which has now been translated and published into 38 different languages, Anita has regularly been interviewed on various prime time television shows around the world, including FOX News, National Geographic, CNN, and many others.
When she’s not traveling and speaking at conferences all over the globe,
Anita spends part of her time in Hong Kong and part of her time in California.
