Q: Describe yourself in 3 Words
A: Compassionate, Hardworking, Leader
Q: What inspires you and why?
A: The women in my life inspire me/ The strong women in my life have shaped me into who I am today. Before she passed, my late grandmother told me to never get comfortable... for life shall never be taken for granted. My great grandfather was Prince Bedir Khan the last Prince of the Kurdish empire. When Saddam Hussein came into power he took our lands and title. My grandmother’s last words to me were, “they can take it all but they can’t take what’s in your heart and blood.”
My greatest inspiration is my mother- she raised us in a single household where she endlessly sacrificed for my sister and I. She taught me to follow my dreams and to hustle by any means necessary with honor and respect
Q: Who is your style icon?
They are her Royal Highness Queen Rania and Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.
They are always so sophisticated and elegant and represent Arab women so well. I have tremendous respect for them as they use their platforms to help women and children around the world.
Q: Do you remember your first time at Roman? How it all began?
A: My sister Sally told me years ago that I just HAD to check out Roman! The perfect mix of flowy and functional that could take me from the office, to meetings and events- and she was right!
Q: Why Roman?
Roman is a luxury brand that never disappoints. The clothes are elegant, fashion-forward with the right touch of glamour for every occasion.
Q: How will you celebrate International Women’s Day?
A: I will celebrate International Women’s Day alongside 8 other phenomenal women selected for the Women’s Cultural leadership delegation trip to Qatar.
