Uzma attributes her love for environment to her nature enthusiast parents. She grew up in a house where food grew in the backyard without any chemical interventions. On a pleasant day, her father would sit with her under the warm sun and read to her. Or simply take in Karachi’s relaxing sea breeze and explore ideas. When her parents were away working, her grandmother would teach her miraculous benefits of herbs and natural therapies. Uzma believes it were her splendid childhood lessons and experiences which have built a special connection between her and nature. Like any other business graduate, she started her career from a bank, but soon after started sensing something was missing. The credit reports and financial analysis didn’t provide her enough options to use her creative prowess. She then switched careers and went on to discover her passion. Her love for writing and inclination towards social media lead her to Corporate Communications. When she is not working she is finding sustainable ideas for a greener lifestyle. Uzma aims to own a farm one day, away from the chaos and clutter of a hustling bustling city, grow her own crops, create healthy delicacies, use everything natural or handmade, de-stress and live a fuller and more meaningful life.

Attaining her degrees in environment has taught Sana a lot about the social responsibility of raising awareness about the environment and changing behaviours toward protecting their surroundings from being harmed so that future generations can enjoy all the natural resources we are enjoying, albeit less and less each day, and so making the true concept of sustainability alive.
