Born and raised in Guyana, South America but my ancestry dates back to India and Afghanistan. I have a Masters in Information Technology and after teaching for a few years and contemplating a career, I decided to stay at home to raise and abundantly enjoy my children.
Somewhere in the midst of that my passion for writing and inspiring other women like myself flared and propelled me to places I never imagined! I write passionately about the beautiful journey of life on my blog, freelance write and I am also a contributor to a number of networks. In addition to that I dabble in crafts with my daughter, build forts with my sons and race more cars on the kitchen floor than you would imagine.
She is giving such a powerful and inspiring insights about Inspiration, Books and Games, Motherhood, Raising Little Muslims, Food, Home Schooling and Product Reviews. She is undoubtedly a great blogger in this generation. She’s a mother of 4 kids: 8 years, 6 years, 3 and 11 months. She now writes freelance for a few online magazines and do a bit of blogging.
Her goal is to launch her own business and to work as hard as she can to make sure its success. She also aspire to inspire other women/moms like herself to passionately pursue their dreams. Lastly and most importantly, she hopes she’s the kind of role model her children will emulate and she hopes to teach them all the fundamentals of our faith through example.
