Batch of BBA 2000 & MBA 2002

CEO of Laboutique1official UAE

 

It’s such a coincidence. My final thesis of MBA was called Buy&sell.com. It never materialized as I got married immediately after completing my MBA. After 15 years, the idea stayed with me and I started laboutique1 for selling preloved fashion. To promote my business, I started blogging. Didn’t realize at that time that blogging can be a full-time business also. And in 3 years I am where I am. I have a following of more than 200,000 on all my social media platforms. I give motivational talks to women to be more independent as well as do fashion and lifestyle blogging. I running my business with the name of “Laboutique1official” I have only 1 piece of advice for the students, whatever you do give your 100%, work hard with honesty and be consistent and success will be yours. I am honored that Bahria considered me worthy of posting my success story. Would love to be of any help if the students need it.
