My family originates from Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar in East Africa so when I had the chance to have a One Minute with Nairobi’s finest events organiser, promoter, PR consultant and Voice-over artist I was ecstatic. Here for your pleasure is Sadia Ahmed Ibrahim…
Tell us a secret…
I’m the original Cat Woman. Ha! I wish! Hmmmm… I don’t think I have any. I’m pretty much an open book.
When’s your birthday?
Do you believe in destiny?
I believe that you create your own destiny. Your destiny is your passion. You’re brought up in a certain way; you have your beliefs and all. Most will impose your destiny on you. Someone may come along and tell you: you’d be a great doctor. You’re still young then so the thought is “implanted” in your head. You grow up, and realize that that isn’t really what you want. Maybe you want to be in a Jazz band. But because that thought’s been with you all along, you’ve built hopes. You get your Masters and end up in a Jazz band. Everyone knows EXACTLY what they want. So was being a doctor your destiny? Or was being in a Jazz band?
Rice or Roti?
I love biryani. I love my sweet n’ sour chicken with vegetarian fried rice. I love pilau. I love kheer (rice pudding). I have to say I love rice. Though I do need my roti fix once in a while. Fiber is important!
Your favourite book
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma.
The best piece of advice ever given to you
“You should not need what you want; you should want what you need”. I learnt that when I was 13. And I live by it to date. Helps set financial priorities mostly. Though I do spoil myself and get what I want on and off. So every time you go out on an impulsive shopping spree, ask yourself, do I really need this? Or do I just want it? (If it fits your budget and you want it, just buy it!)
What would you say is your best feature?
Physically, what is your favourite part of a man?
ARMS! I am a sucker for arms!!! If you don’t have nice, big, juicy, bulky arms. I will not look at you again.
Coffee or Tea?
I’d say it’s balanced. I usually have one of each in a day.
