" I am very passionate to envision a world in which all girls and young women, regardless of their economic background, are nurtured and empowered to reach their fullest potential. It is my mission to provide adroit, but underprivileged women with a platform to showcase their skills in the form of high quality, creative and affordable bags. In this way I will achieve two goals, NO POVERTY and GENDER EQUALITY. (In Sha Allah) "
