3. Favourite thing to do in Dubai?
FOOD! Getting to the hidden gems and feeling like a local! & bringing out the foodie in me . I think there’s so much of culture and authenticity in local food. In January 2022, when we visited the local hidden gems! And not the insta famous restaurants- but rather the places that’s been known for years for its quality food and reasonable prices.

The need to have to pay lawyer bills after a divorce! It was a difficult situation and it’s what gave me the driving force to create my brand!

7. Some advice to all the young people and young women who look up to you?
Always be true to yourself , don’t be forced to be confined into this box where your community and our culture expects us to be. There’s loads of days where I feel like not doing anything but I still have to get up and do it and you need to always remember to get up and do what needs to be done.
8. Favourite hotel in Dubai?
Nikki Beach Dubai
9. Favourite restaurant in Dubai?
I am a huge fan of traditional indo / pak food and it’s usually the quieter authentic gems that are not necessarily Insta worthy that are actually my favourite’s.
A few from my last trip that I really enjoyed, Jaffer Bhai Biryani, Chicken Tikka Inn, Sindh Punjab and Chinchaaus
