Do you ever wonder about other women’s lives? Like actual real day-to-day, hard working women? So often I meet one and think wow, she looks so great, works so hard and seems to get so much done! I wonder what she is doing to keep it all together like that. Or hear about someone and think wow, I wonder what she is doing so well, and how can she do all she does… without collapsing. We admire them and often have them as mentors.
With that in mind, Pathways will be interviewing women and posting their interviews here in our community journal. These are women I know personally or have been recommended to me as being women who inspire others to do more and be better; women who motivate others and are truly beautiful inside and out. Let’s peek into their lives just a bit, shall we?
I have the pleasure of meeting many women along my path in life, but truly not all of them move my heart quite like Alia. The first time I had met her all I could think of was, “Here is the frosting on the Cupcakes, and Sparkle and Shine Baby!” She writes a monthly column, LuloBlue for Pathways Jeddah.
She serves as a gentle reminder when you have the pleasure of working with her, that we should not just ‘settle’ for good if we could do better. She is all in or all out because she only gives her best. She adopted me, and I couldn’t be more proud when she calls me mama. 🙂
She fits the definition of greatness so well. She is an architect, a loving mother, a caring wife, a trustworthy friend, a dedicated volunteer and a supporter of anyone at all. Her qualities are many, but to name a few; she motivates, inspires, works hard, plays fair, and will make you feel like you are the best person in the world when she talks to you.
Without any more delay, lets peak inside a bit and see what makes her tick.
