As a child, I knew deep down that I had to find a way out of a world with predisposed ideas of who I needed to be. As a young girl, I was putting on entertaining shows or pioneering in ways that my friends would not dare due to cultural and social norms. I was ‘different’ and wanted more than what was afforded to me in Pakistan. So when an opportunity came, I took it.
I chose marriage as a way to escape a predetermined life, yet I found myself in the very kind of life I was running away from. The marriage was filled with negotiation and dismissal of my true yearnings. Flash forward twenty-five years, I found myself hostage in a life that once again thwarted my potential and I once again, wanted a way out.
I spent a large portion of my life dishonoring my emotions. Instead, I chose to compromise or silence my feelings to keep the status quo. This constant dishonoring of myself ultimately led to dishonoring those around me. Something had to change and it began with addressing that which I had long ignored - my essence
Today, I work on making amends with myself and loved ones. I follows my yearnings and create a better version of myself in each given moment. This journey towards authenticity has allowed me to work with others to honor their true self and embrace the person they can potentially become. More importantly, I am becoming the woman that my inner child is honored to be.

So when you tell me about life transitions, whether a move, a new job, a business, or school, or changes in family and relationships, and I say, "I understand," please know that I truly do. Like you, I have experienced tremendous success and utter failure. I too have landed new jobs and been fired. I too have started new businesses and wrapped up old ones. I too have experienced the joys of family and relationships, and I too, have dealt with heart-breaks, death and divorce.
Regardless of religious, cultural or social differences, I relate to you on a deep and profound level – the level of universal human emotions.
I continue to use the power of emotions to design a spectacular life. Let me share with you how and help you to realize your potential!
