We're back! Today we present the wonderful Ugbad Farah who is an IT Consultant based in London, Ontario. Ugbad earned her BA Honours Specialization in Political Science with a Minor in Sociology from The University of Western Ontario. Masha'Allah!
How does she define success?
"Growing up in the Somali community there are evident measures of success. Get an education, become a doctor, lawyer or engineer and get married. All those things are great but, they shouldn't be the be-all and end-all. It’s almost 2020, there are some many career options that didn't even exists 10 or 20 years ago. I urge Somali youth and all youth to research different industries, talk to professionals and find out what opportunities are out there. Success is finding something purposeful and fulfilling and true success should encompass all parts of your life. Success for me is peace of mind, strong faith, good health and the freedom to help those in need."
Well said Ugbad! We love to see our sisters prosper. Wishing you continued success! Check out Ugbad's full profile on our website!
