Amar Ajnalkar: Tell our readers about yourself?

Aayushi Shah: My name is Aayushi Shah. I have done my graduation in Computer Engineering from Pune University. Also I am a food and travel influencer and my Instagram handle is – @the_lost_cheff. I have always been foodie so I kind of use to explore much and try different dishes every time and post it on my private social media account. Every time my friends use to call me up asking me about the food I tried so I thought why not make a page and share all the details about whatever I had and overall experience. Slowly I started getting appreciation for the efforts I use to take and that thing kept me going. I loved traveling and explore new places, do research so I started with travel and guess what? my first ever collaboration was with Hostels in Goa. I don’t have a team I do everything my self. 

Amar Ajnalkar: How did you come up with the name for your Instagram account?

Getting your face printed on lays Packet is a big thing. And my best stay Collaboration was with Xoxo hostels, Goa. As everything was just perfect say it stay, service, food. 

Amar Ajnalkar: How many hours a day do you work and hows your daily schedule?

Aayushi Shah: I love reading motivational books but sometimes not much and also I am not a movie person. I hardly watch movies. 

Amar Ajnalkar: What surprising lessons have you learned while influencing?

Aayushi Shah: There will be people in your field who will be jealous of you and will pull you down in every possible way but just remember why you started and for whom? And in this entire process be yourself and stand by yourself. I am an introvert. Meeting new people every day was a challenging task for me. I and one of my friend kept motivating me all the time and now I don’t find it a problem at all. So basically everything is within yourself. We, humans, are like clay we can mold ourselves the way we wish too. It’s just that you gotta make an effort and work for it.
