When there’s a will,there’s a way – Sarah Turab
By Sarah Turab
If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone turned to make it a reality.
I started my new career as an entrepreneur 3 years ago with a heart and mind full of doubts that either I can turn my dream of doing something different or walk away from my dream. Since my childhood U wanted to do something special that would make my parents proudly say that “Yes, that`s our daughter”.
After completing my education I went into the very noble profession of teaching in a leading school of Pakistan but I left it after marriage. After gap of many years, I thought to utilize my capabilities and started an online business on branded accessories. Few months into the business, I organised my solo exhibition in a big hotel of Karachi. It was followed by an exhibition “Celebrating Creative Minds” with the presence of 16 brands. In the last 3 years, I have suffered a lot of hardships, rejections, trials but I have kept on trying working hard and by the Grace of Allah, people now recognize me as “ST” – the Managing Director of ST Women’s Club and ST Imperial Collections.
Under the umbrella of ST Women’s Club I have worked as an organizer, a social worker, a motivational speaker, an artist and SanaKhawan. In 2017 we started a series of meetups titled “ST Icebreaker” and have arranged 3 meetups focusing on business, and networking between business ladies, housewives and students where they get a chance to meet their favorite celebrities as well.
During this journey I met so many people who encouraged me for doing excellent work and supported. I`m extremely thankful to them. Experience from all these years have taught me a lot.
By doing social work for cancer and burn victims I have learned that if these people have courage to fight with their diseases and wounds then we can also stand up and face every difficulty of life.
I also try to spend quality time with senior citizens as well, I love the way they look at me when I go to meet and listen to their stories.
I’m thankful to my family that what ever I want to pursue they stood by me wholeheartedly. They have always encouraged me that I can achieve whatever I want with dedication and hard work.
I prefer to work with my colleagues in a friendly manner but with dignity and honesty. By the grace of Allah now we are working at international level as well.
I remember me and my family`s excitement of the first time when ST Imperial Collections and ST Women’s Club name appeared on national TV screen. Our exhibitions news were covered by Pakistan’s leading TV News channels, newspapers and famous fashion magazines covered our events.
I never thought of this respect that I earned but I worked very hard for it, literally standing throughout nights before my all events.
Always remember that whatever your passion is, you should keep working towards it without losing your dignity. Don’t waste time comparing yourself to others. Every flower blooms at a different pace. Excel at doing what your passion is and focus only on perfecting it. Eventually people will see what you are great at doing, and if you are truly great, success will surely come chasing after you.
We welcome all who want to work with us.
