Zarah Fernando

NHS Mental Health Therapist & Andaz London Guest

Zarah Fernando is a dedicated NHS Mental Health Therapist and repeat guest at Andaz London Liverpool Street. When asked what inspires her, Zarah talks about her family. Her family instilled the view that she should always believe in herself – “You can have all the wants in the world, but if you don’t believe in yourself, they are less likely to happen”.

Outside of work, Zarah values social activities and seeing her friends and family. Being around the people who have known her for a while allows Zarah to feel comfortable being who she is.

Three words Zarah uses to describe Andaz London are: ‘Vibrant’, ‘Energetic’, and ‘Non-Conformist’. Expressing individuality is essential to Zarah. She likes to be free to be herself, be honest, have integrity, and align with her moral perspective. Without guests having to act a certain way, Andaz performs with deliverance and to a high standard. With Andaz London being situated in East London, Zarah can enjoy the thing she loves the most about the area: the diversity.
