Social Diary had a word with this amazing ball of talent who is creating waves and doing so on her own terms!
SD: Share with us a little about your childhood and growing up?
Fatima: I was raised by a single parent, my dad. I had spent the early years of my childhood in Doha and then moved to Karachi. Growing up I wasn’t into fashion at all. However I loved to read; so much so that I would read for hours on end. I would also write, which is something I want to start doing again.
SD: Did you always feel the world of glamor is going to be your true calling?
Fatima: Not at all! I was actually working in a completely different field – the development sector for about 6 years before I got into modelling and that’s something I’m still very passionate about.
SD: What was the first project you took upon?
Fatima: I modelled for MAHGUL.
SD: Were you nervous and was it what you hoped it would be?
Fatima: I wasn’t nervous, I just didn’t want to let the brand down. Recently I found out that it was one of their best selling collections till date.
SD: What remains the most memorable project for you yet and why?
Fatima: Definitely my Sana Safinaz shoot in Turkey! It was freezing cold and we were wearing lawn, I thought I might not survive but I did. And that made me feel like I could accomplish anything.
SD: How do you compare the modeling industry of Pakistan to international platforms?
Fatima: I haven’t modeled internationally yet so I’m not in the best place to compare but from what I can gather, I think international platforms are far more professional.
SD: How have you been copying in the pandemic – how has it affected you on a personal and professional stance?
Fatima: I think if anything it helped me grow professionally – I started focusing on my Instagram content creation and became quite good at it. I also enjoyed getting to spend unadulterated time with my husband.
SD: Will you consider getting into dramas and movies anytime soon?
Fatima: Yes why not, if the right opportunity comes my way
SD: Are there any hobbies or side interests you pursue as well?
Fatima: I enjoy fitness and working out, also digital content creation. I love to read and write and maybe sing sometimes.
SD: How do you keep a competitive edge in the work you do?
Fatima: I just try to stay true to myself.
SD: What is the one thing you wish to change about the modeling industry and why?
Fatima: I hope our modeling industry can become more professional and better organized. The talent we have is off the charts and I think fixing a few kinks will take us a long long way.
SD: Are you content with the ways things are moving or do you wish to pursue something more or different in 2022?
Fatima: I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive, you can be content while wanting to pursue more. I’m very content and am open to receiving whatever goodness the universe brings my way.
