Saba’s also a foodie just like us, though she is very specific about what to eat, likes to grow her own vegetables, enjoying the simpler things in life. She’s also very generous and regularly engages in philanthropy, helping those in need. Saba holds a firm belief in giving back to the society.

What makes Saba stand out the most is that we can all relate to her, she’s one of us, a girl who had the courage to follow her dreams, a woman who proves that a person can enjoy their life and work at the same time, one does not have to forgo the former for the latter. She provides us with a glimmer of hope, that if she can do it, then so can we, and sometimes that shred of perseverance is all one needs to be successful in life.
