  • In the last 12 months, I expanded the footprint of my jewellery brand Alezan By SK by taking it outside of the UAE to the wider GCC and the US. Our jewellery was worn at important events by several Hollywood celebrities, including Emma Stone, Taraji Penda Henson and Zoe Saldana.

  • I’ve also worked with my husband on Remaliya Restaurant and Café, which is inspired by our travels, the amazing destinations we visited and the wonderful food we’ve had. 

  • The best thing about being an entrepreneur is that you can actually tailor-make your day to fit both your professional and personal goals and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’m happy to say that I live the perfect day, every day, by choice. I make time to ride horses, as I love to be on the move and have this need to exert physical energy.

  • Never say no to an opportunity. Success comes from hard work and never giving up. 

  • Start big or small, but do start! A lot of people think that I began this business with a huge investment, when the contrary is true. I started small, and with vision, commitment and a firm belief in my dreams and goals, I was able to nurture it to where I wanted it to be.
