When troubled by existentialist questions, my solution is simple: I find meaning in life when forming lasting connections with people and nature. Making an indelible impact on someone’s life is what truly matters to me. I dream of becoming a successful philanthropist one day.
I’m still searching for a way to pack five lives into one. When not switching roles between my other four lives, I can sometimes be found at gaming night with the boys. In an alternate universe, I’d probably be a cricket commentator. Pet peeve: slow drivers in the fast lane.
You know those people who are perpetually chirpy & happy and find small reasons to celebrate? I’m one of them. I read, I dance, I enjoy rain and cold weather. I’m fascinated by the folklore surrounding vampires, witchcraft and fairies. Oh, and a little secret: I can be plied with chocolate!
The 9 to 5 crunch is not my cup of tea. I believe in getting results, the timings are secondary! I live to see the beauty in little things: peaceful places, walks on the beach, long drives. I feel that the only way to be happy is the realization that there’s more to life than money and materialistic things.
Accountant by day, counter-terrorist by night (and on weekends!). I may not have a secret identity but being part of a Counter Strike clan has its own responsibilities. I don’t like the idea of not being able to express my thoughts and honestly, presentations make me nervous.
My spare time is divided between the gym and the other love of my life: sleep. Although I’m not generally a movie person, Mohabattein is one of my favorites because I’m inspired by the idea of people coming together. If not at my desk, I can be found humming in the office corridors.
I am an open, fun-loving person who is always up for adventure. I am very social so I love to meet new people and make new friends, and draw my strength from others. My firm belief that as individuals we must constantly grow and evolve ensures that I am always ready to try new experiences!
My name is Areeba and I’m a shopaholic. There, I said it. I’m the person who believes that when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. If I walk into a makeup or clothing store, chances are I won’t come out empty handed. Things my life is incomplete without: selfies, vampires & bbqs.
Though my main interest lies in learning more about computers, I wouldn’t say I’m a computer geek, glued to my laptop all day. Playing outdoor sports like cricket and football is just as much fun for me! Things that brighten up my day: surprise visits from the people I love.
I believe clothes make the man. You wouldn’t be too far off the mark if you were to call me a shopaholic. One day, I want to take a bike tour of Pakistan and then the world! I once fought off a herd of deer in Balochistan (ok, that might be the slightly exaggerated version of the story!).
When I’m not at the office, my life is a balancing act between being a teacher and a student. I am constantly on a journey to learn more. Learn more about what? It can be anything, really! I just like the idea of gathering as much knowledge as I possibly can about anything under the sun.
I like to add a little bit of everything to my scope of work and that keeps me super motivated. When it comes to completing tasks, I am always on top on my game. Little do they know the minor panic attacks I get in between. But by the end of all the chaos, you will find me relaxing at a corner with a book in my hand.
