About Me


Gluten Free Jio is my brainchild. It is an online destination, where people concerned about Celiac disease can get information and advice from a teenager’s perspective on Celiac disease, gluten-free living, recipes and travel tips. More importantly by sharing my personal experiences, I want people to know they are not alone, and instead of being overwhelmed by the Celiac tag, they can tackle life by the horns and come out as winners.


I am an 18-year-old girl, called Annika Dhariwal, who was diagnosed with Celiac disease at the age of 9. As someone who attends Cheltenham Ladies College, a boarding school overseas in the U.K., and has traveled to over forty countries, I hope to encourage and inspire other children and adults on a gluten free diet to dream big. Having a serious restrictive diet is no reason to mope at home and hide from the world. Through my blog and website, Gluten Free Jio which I started in 2018 when I was 14 years old, my goal is to share some personal experiences of being a gluten free teen in a boarding school abroad, and tips in leading a gluten free lifestyle while at home in India. Gluten Free Jio is a platform, where you can seek help and find a community for yourself or your loved ones, get comprehensive knowledge about being gluten free in India and abroad, and find comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
