A Pakistani woman living the American dream. Life began for me as an adult when I immigrated to Seattle, USA from Dubai, UAE in 2014 in hopes to get a better education and grow into my career. Being an immigrant and a Muslim woman who was raised with 4 brothers; I have made bold choices through struggles all my life, whether it is breaking stereotypical norms, marrying outside of my religion, moving out at the age of 18, pursuing my dreams or getting married at the age of 21 to the love of my life, Kishan Mistry. I am extremely vocal and direct so you don't have to beat around the bush with me. I am a firm believer in growing and hustling together therefore I share the love and knowledge with everyone I meet. I love hosting and feeding people which comes from just being a major food enthusiast and a brown girl. I am a sucker for Bollywood movies and a die-hard Shahrukh Khan fan. In my free time you'll find me helping people, doing self-care, plotting goals or dancing up a storm to let loose.
I am currently finishing up my Bachelors degree at Central Washington University where I take classes full-time in the evening and work at Amazon during the day.
I have 8+ years of work experience in Retail, Finance and Tech combined. I have worked for major banking corporations and retail stores but to find a better work life balance and a new challenge I took a leap of faith into the Tech industry by starting at Amazon where I now manage operations for AWS platforms.
Life is all about being balanced so as much as I like to work hard I also like to reap the fruits of it by truly enjoying what I do. On @Azkaay I focus on empowering, entertaining people, breaking stereotypical norms, and showcasing every day life. It is my creative outlet and a side hustle where I enjoy connecting with like minded individuals and help them level up.
