Supriya Iyer

I’m a baker, barista and dancer. I switched careers from journalism at 25, and I’ve been doing what I love ever since. Love food and travel!


Supriya Iyer took 48th place in the Group Twelve! Thank you for helping the K2 foundation; who has been positively impacting the lives of people around the world through their mission to help individuals with life challenges and disabilities realize their full potential.

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

My secret talent would be singing! Although I’ve danced to an audience many times in life, I have never actually had the guts to sing in front of anyone. That doesn’t stop me from singing in the bathroom or from looking up lyrics to every song I like, so that I can sing along when I listen to it inn Spotify!

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

Let’s be clear, I am not doing this for money! I always wanted to get a portfolio done. But I used to have reservations about my body. With age, I’ve come to realise that we’re beautiful because of who we are. And in the end, it is all about how confident and fit we feel! Luckily, the world is becoming more inclusive and getting better at addressing a concept I like to call “beauty without barriers”. I’d spend $5000 on travelling to Europe, and donate the other half to cancer research.
