Asian Women of Achievement Awards

Fifty accomplished women, including a stand-up comedian, a TV star and a number of young businesswomen have been shortlisted for the 2015 Asian Women of Achievement Awards. 

Held tonight, the awards are now in their 16th year and aim to highlight the contribution that Asian women make to sectors including business, sport and culture, which organisers say is often overlooked.

Tanya Datta is shortlisted in the young achiever category, she joined London Live's Alex Beard to tell us more.
