Definition of success is different for everyone.
All women are heroes and we don’t need any day to celebrate them. Each woman is strong and awesome in her own ways because, before being a wife, a mother, a daughter she is an individual and she is a life and human. Talking about women we often says that, women of this age got so much passion and courage and ambitions.
From chasing their dreams to full filling them. Having a firm believe on something and strictly sticking to them. Women can do all. There are successful business women, entrepreneur, mothers, teachers, doctors. Any one you can name it.
For every women the definition of success is different for some it is:
Believing that woman can be successful only if she is working as a business woman or running a own business, but that is wrong a mother can be called a successful woman, maybe according to her that was her dream that she has achieved and got where she wanted to be. Maybe that’s a complete set of life for her.
We have often seen women criticising women on her choice of life. They think being a mother is end on everything. But what we think is that that’s nit the end but beginning of many beautiful chapter of life.
There are women who are single and living their dreams because living that life was their dream they are also running a successful life without depending on some one. Real islam also encourage success of a woman. Khadijah bint khauwaylid also known as Khadija al-Kubra was also a business woman and successfully running a trading. She was a widow before she married Hazrat Muhammad PBUH.
Do not be judge of any one’s choice
We should not be judge of any one’s choice. We should support them. In any way we can if we dont support them, then who will.

When you started all of what was going on in your mind?
In my mind was all about earning a name, my father work shop was also of shoe and I often think about how the unique craftsmanship of our local craftsmen is going to waste and our market is getting filled with imported but low quality shoes. So I decided to end this all and start a new thing locally manufactured shoes that can be sign of quality in other countries too. So me and my cousins got their heads together we were thirteen and got there where we are today. So that’s why it is called Chapter 13 with a new chapter.
What challenges you have to face to get to this point?
There were not challenges as such but when, I came back after completing my degree and wanted to invest in my business my investor was having thoughts. It was not because of any capability doubt or anything but it was gender based. And there is no business with out any challenge is there?
Was your family in favour of this?
Yes my family was with me in this. My family is of family of shoe manufacturers. So it was not an issue, my father trusted me and that kept me going.
