I was in Bay View High School till my O Levels and then L’Ecole for my A Levels.
I was a national swimmer in school and participated in long jump and high jump competitions.
I certainly do feel I have come a long way in my profession and it was a pleasure to see that the hunt was not just for models but for multi faceted all rounders who were successful in their respective careers and have worked hard over the years to become somebody.
Balancing your personal life from your professional can be challenging at times depending on your lifestyle I assume. I have been fortunate not to get the two mixed up or find it challenging.
I have been acting ever since I can remember. I started modeling when I was 16. As a teenager I didn't enjoy modeling too much and was afraid I was too young to be caught up in the industry therefore seldom did shows. As an adult I grew to be more confident with a stronger more mature head on my shoulders and found modeling more interesting and easier. However, I still try to be selective about my work. As for acting I feel time and practice like anything makes one better and better at it. Black Fish, Chicago and Mamma Mia have been my best projects to date. Good team leaders, directors, years of experience on stage and passion has brought me where I am.
Women on news channels today, commercials, models, teachers especially, doctors, actors, NGO workers these women and many more are playing as big a role as they can in society. They are inspiring men, other women and children all the time. Their commitment, dedication, independence and femininity are prevalent all around us. An independent working woman’s role has proved to go a long way both nationally and internationally.
I don't have to wait 10 years to see where the progressive women of Pakistan have gotten. There have been, are and will be progressive women in Pakistan constantly setting strong role models for younger women or those beginning their careers. Opening up to international standards is where I hope to see us all.
I hope that my involvement in this project encourages other girls particularly in the modeling/glamour industry to strive a little harder than just working on their appearances; to be passionate about other things they might enjoy doing and to never stop trying. In other words, (it has to be said) I hope that my being one of the brand spokespeople makes them all feel they're worth it too.
I am an example of one of the modern day, working, independent young women of Pakistan. I have represented my country as captain of my swim team, as a comedian, as an actor, as a model and now I get the chance to represent Pakistan as a brand spokesperson of the largest beauty company in the world. Therefore I think I can add to the positive message and idea regarding women of the third world countries that we have been able to achieve every now and then through various platforms.
Any organisation working with children. An orphanage, Edhi or SOS.
Follow your dream, never ever for one second give up something you feel you are immensely passionate about. Always try before you knock it down, not just once or twice but several times before you decide you have to give it up. Parents: support your children, let them put their foot in the door of their dreams and give them a chance before holding them back. I for one am extremely grateful to my parents for believing in me and letting me chase my dreams.
