This February, all month long, we’re honouring the work of 28 inspiring leaders. Women who are drawing upon and celebrating their culture while making a lasting difference in their community using their gifts. From authors and teachers, CEOs to entrepreneurs, not-for-profit directors, artists, and more, these women are changing the face of leadership.

These are truly women to watch and veza community is so pleased to share their brilliance.

May their stories inspire YOU to rise.

Meet Rupi Kainth.

Rupi is an entrepreneur, designer, photographer, interior designer, home builder and the CEO of Studio Orange Photography, who is based in Vancouver but has done amazing work in Calgary, California, Hawaii, and Mexico. She’s a creative, love-filled, and passionate woman—a mother, a daughter, a sister, a spiritualist, and a friend.

So tell us, Rupi…

What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?

I am motivated to get up each morning to give the best I can to my life and the people who have been placed in it. To share, to grow, to learn.

How do you feel that your actions teach or inspire others?

By living authentically, being in tune with the Infinite, tapping into Love and basing daily and life decisions as coming from a place of Love.

What is one change you’d like to see in the world?

People putting their egos aside, and loving more. People being vulnerable and genuine, and both accepting from and giving as much as possible to the other humans in the world.

Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?

Thriving alone as a mother. Career, business and financial achievements come easier to me, but it is the emotional journeys that I hold highest.

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Rupi!
