Samyukhta Vijayan Vijayan is from Chennai completed her Bachelors in Engineering (electronics and communication) from PSG College of technology. Reportedly she had previously worked in Amazon and also runs her own start-up named Toute Studio which focuses on up skilling transgender women in areas related to fashion, design, makeup and hair styling and she is also into modeling for her own products as well.

Moreover after working in Europe and the US for many years she finally came back to india in 2017. Perhaps acknowledging the challenges that most transgender candidates go through, Vijayan thanked her family for their support in education and extracurricular activities to shape her career, and which made her financially independent. Vijayan said “For transgender candidates who have the potential but do not have the traditional qualifications (like a university degree or a certain skill) companies should put together an internship or a training program to train them with the right skills and then absorb them into the firm as an employee”.
