Day 07 - Passion

Day 07 - Passion

May 06, 2019

Before I came to Dubai 10 years ago I was at University studying Interior Design, I enjoyed design as I had always had a passion for creating and making things, but I still needed to earn an income to finance my studies. I set up selling t-shirts in my student accommodation, designing and printing them whilst selling online through platforms such as eBay and for social events, I really enjoyed doing this and it was a great way to earn money. After I graduated from University I moved to the UAE to join my family who were working here, reality kicked in then you have bills to pay and the freedom of University was gone, and for a while it was all about a job, I worked for a large retail company which involved a lot of travelling and I would use the time spent in airports and hotels to jot down my ideas and designs and the passion to have my own business never went away. You need money to pay bills but you need to love what you do!
