My Female Reliant Five

As we celebrate this year`s World Women’s day, I decided to celebrate wonderful women who have helped in shaping the woman I have turned out to be.

They have challenged, encouraged and supported me, in all ways possible to them.

My Mum

She is my queen and am forever grateful to have her as my mum and best friend.

How she manages to keep the two titles, I have no idea. But am grateful, she plays both roles excellently.

Surprisingly, she doesnt really understand something I do. But her question always remains, Is that what you wanted?

She is always ready to give me the hard talks, peeps talks and guidance.

Fazeela Mubarak

What do I see on this one?

It`s a lot, am happy to have her as my best friend.

Unfortunately, I was late on our very first meeting. But she was understanding and we clicked the very first minutes. And the rest is histroy.

She introduced me to amazing like minded people who turned into family. From the funniest Tiju, FONNAP, YMA, among others.

She is behind so many big moves you have seen me achieve. Always there for me, pushing me to do more and better.

Sumaiya Harunany

A beautiful soul that am forever grateful to have as a friend.

She made it possible for me to plant mangrooves, and keep motivating me to be better through opportunities she gives.

I loved her simplicity, beautiful heart and hospitality.

She is enormously gifted, yet very humble and at the service of anyone who may need her help without even asking. She is that cool.

Vicki Wangui

She was the first one to give me an opportunity as a panelist through Biophilic. Even went ahead to feature my blog on her website.

She is just uniquely amazing, and I count myself lucky to have crossed her path.

I find strength and hope through everything she shares on social media, its always thoughts provoking and something to seriously check into.

She keeps reminding us of realities in life without scaring us away, helping us understand and appreciate what life decided to present in our daily lives.

She is way better and cooler in person.


Last, but not the least. I appreciate myself for stepping up and help shape the now me.

Few years ago, I couldn’t even dream of half things I have done.

What I would advise, be easy on yourself and take one step at a time.


I do appreciate all females who have been with me on this journey. The likes, comments, emails, messages, etc. They always mean a lot. From my blog stats, almost half is contributed by females. As we celebrate World Women`s Day, feel appreciated and celebrated. You are doing great and in due time. You will see that yourselves.

Happiest World Women`s Day

Women are building a future that’s sustainable, peaceful, inclusive and equitable.
