Simone Ashley Parents
She comes from a traditional Indian family, who find her non-traditional career path “quite scary and unsettling”. Simone Ashley told Veylex: “You can’t spend your life going with what your parents want, or your friends, teachers, lovers, want. You have to be your own hero and just go with your gut. My parents are incredibly protective over me, and sometimes I found it quite stifling. It made me want to escape and do things my own way. I’ve always been a bit rebellious in that sense. I am incredibly privileged to be apart of a generation where young women from all over the world have more opportunities than ever before, where we are being less stereotyped and walls and being broken down slowly. It can be hard for my parents to understand that sometimes, but I just try to empathize with them and reassure them that I’m going to be fine.” Her father has always been deeply passionate about music, film, and photography.
