India Hendrikse is a multi-disciplinary journalist, photographer and poet. Educated at Auckland University of Technology, she graduated in 2014 with a major in Journalism.

She then went on to work for Bauer Media in her home of Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand), where she was a travel journalist for Air New Zealand and then Culture Editor for a weekly lifestyle magazine. In 2018, she moved to London, where she has freelanced for Vice and The Independent, and worked as a full-time writer for motherhood website ChannelMum.com.

Her passions lie within environmentalism, animal rights and The Arts. She’s a firm believer in the power of the written word, and the democratisation of intelligent, unbiased journalism. This feeds into her creative and poetic writing, where she uses her passion for the diversity of the human experience to delve into the human psyche, sexuality and female empowerment.

India is available for commissions – from interviews and long-form articles, to essays and bite-sized content – and poetry and photography projects and collaborations.
