Interview with [email protected](Gafla)
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My business partner and I wanted to showcase our heritage and traditions in the form of jewellery where the designs would be made in a more modern and contemporary way.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I would not say it’s a specific story but the most interesting aspect of our business is that we keep finding more information and details about our heritage. Also another thing is how people react to our jewels and find them very sentimental and reminds them of a grandmother or a great grandmother .
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Consistency is key to any success and never stop learning
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Both me and my business partner had not just one but a great support system around us from friends and family and I would say we would not be where we are without them
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Every year we try to support a charity organization by creating a special piece and the profits go to the charity chosen for the year.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Always remember why to started, it’s the core of our brand to represent the UAE culture and heritage to the world.
