“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.” – Hilary Clinton
Women are making a mark for themselves in today’s world; there is no doubt about that. But there is still a dearth when it comes to women working in the field of technology, particularly in a country like Pakistan whose IT industry is a male dominated one.
With women’s day just around the corner, we at IDG Pakistan thought it would be just the right time to get in touch with some of the astounding women working in technology in the country.
Sahr Said CEO and Founder of Beauty Hooked, a startup that allows one to find and book the perfect beauty service near you and avail exclusive discounts for services at top tier salons said:
“I truly believe that women have the power and ability to do whatever they set their minds to, at the same time it is important to be FUN. FEARLESS & FEMALE and not let that slip away between the hard work and grit that you are putting into building your success.”
The quote that Sahr lives by is:
“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have here back.”
According to her women should go out there, dare to dream and to do something BIG, find mentors and advisors that “have your back,” and driven mentees that could use you as an inspiration to cheer them along. In order to create tribes of successful women those contribute to a stronger, smarter, and liberated Pakistan.
