Hi! I am Nimra Arain, a 29 years old, single and not looking for rishtas, happy in my own world, a career oriented simple yet sassy desi woman living in the United States.
My parents actually named me Nimra Talib, but Arain (Surname) was added to my name, when I was filling out my GCE (O’Levels) application and it stuck with me forever, and I kinda like it now 😉
I was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and moved to USA around 9 years ago. Since then life has been different than I imagined, but I managed and I am very proud of where I stand in life on my own. (Desi Girl Power!)
By graduation, I am a biologist, but the inner me is now convinced (in last 4 years) that I can’t really be in a lab all day long, running bacteria tests, working with cells, etc. This is way too serious (and slightly boring) for me, so I’m still exploring my options (nothing wrong with that!).
Yes, I don’t believe in the typical desi timeline, where if you are lucky you get your degree by the age of 24 and then you HAVE TO get married, others get married before depending on the cast and family, have kids and then they work hard for their kids (and then die!).
My life was totally different from my fellow age mates, and now I am kind of happy that things turned out the they way they are. I will get into that later someday (cuz I tell ya, that’s an interesting story 😛 ). Anyhow, so why I am here and why The Sassy Desi?
I have been thinking about starting a blog for the longest time but didn’t had the right moment to make it happen. The Sassy Desi, is my innovative outlet focusing mainly on DIY projects, food, travel, beauty, life hacks and obvious topics people are afraid to talk about.
I will leave with this quote:
Until next time…..
