About Verna Gao...

Verna Gao, a London-based content creator and influencer, has captivated over half a million followers across Instagram and TikTok with her unique blend of food, vegan, and lifestyle content. Known as vernahungrybanana online, Verna's journey began in Shanghai, where she was born. Following her parents' divorce, she moved to London to live with her father and stepmother. This move marked a significant turning point in her life, as cooking became a bridge to stay connected to her Chinese heritage, a theme that resonates deeply in her online presence.

Verna’s content is a vibrant tapestry that weaves together her Chinese roots with her current London life. Her recipes and lifestyle tips are more than just a nod to her heritage; they are a celebration of it. Her platform is a testament to how food can be both a comfort and a connector, transcending borders and creating a shared experience among her diverse audience. Her expertise in digital marketing and advertising has only amplified her ability to connect with her audience, creating content that is not only visually appealing but also deeply resonant and authentic.

In September 2023, Verna took her influence to the next level with the publication of her debut cookery book, ‘Have You Eaten?’ with DK Life. This book is a culmination of her journey so far, blending her passion for vegan cooking with her Chinese heritage. It has become a reflection of her philosophy that food is more than sustenance; it's a story, an experience, and a way to bring people together.

Through her work, Verna Gao stands out as a multi-dimensional influencer. She's not just sharing recipes; she's sharing her life, her culture, and her passion. Her ability to engage with her audience on multiple levels – as a product marketer, content creator, and storyteller – makes her a standout figure in the digital landscape, particularly in the realms of food, veganism, and lifestyle.
