A face to face with Scaryammi, a blog for all moms out there who can relate to the experiences of a Paki mommy!
Why did you call your blog Scaryammi? Are you trying to scare the kids? No, The blog and mothering support group is called Scaryammi because I based it on my own experience as a mom. I define myself as a Scaryammi because I feel I am a tiger mom, through and through! I drive myself hard and push my kids even harder. I want my children to learn the value of hard work and commitment at an early age and hence I push them to excel. Being a type A ambitious mom makes me a Scaryammi and this platform is about uniting all mothers with dreams and ambitions for their children.
What do you hope to achieve through this platform? I am eager to provide a helpful, informative and supportive platform for all mothers across Pakistan and abroad. I have always believed that when mommies help out other mommies, the results are magical. I hope to provide mothers with a much-needed platform which provides answers to questions such as ‘where can we find an urdu tutor’ to support for mommies suffering from post partum depression.
How do you think scaryammi is making a difference? I think only in the span of 3 months Scaryammi has already made a difference. Every month we do a theme and we always pick up topics that no one else is discussing for our themes. So last month we discussed Post Partum Depression and many, many women came forth and spoke on the page about battling depression after having a child. It was really awe-inspiring.
What is the theme for this month? We are discussing body shaming this month and talking about the criticism women get for being over weight or too thin or in between. A number of women have come forth with their remarkable stories of how taunts and comments has shaped the way they see themselves.
You have these super cute mugs which have a funny Scaryammi statement on them; what is that? The mugs state: “Don’t make me use my scaryammi voice.” I love these!
Tell us about the super popular events you are always conducting. We do a lot of learning and networking events which are aimed at helping build a community both online and offline. Our nutrition events have developed a loyal following and every month we have a heated discussion about weight and fitness. Our playdates are super popular and sells out within hours and the same is the case with our professional mommies networking lunch.
Where do you see Scaryammi going? I see it going far, far, far away. Into a not-so-scary future.
What project are you most excited about in the near future? I am super psyched about the conference of inspiration which will be taking place on 9th February and has an amazing line-up of speakers such as Anjum Ahmed, Qasim Ali Khan and many others. Natty is hosting the event. Sophiya is hosting the orange carpet and we are eager to be part of an event where we will be able to inspire women. The tagline of the event is: To inspire women is to inspire an entire generation.
