It is not easy for a person to introduce himself. It is a form of evaluation that needs a lot of objective vision which I probably do not have. To me, I am just Zahra. This is why I am putting together this fun introduction based on small pieces of information, to introduce you to the real Zahra behind this life coaching career and the Zahra Awaz fashion line!!
Who am I?
Zahra Awaz, wife and mother to be, born January 28 in 1983. I am born and raised in UAE – Dubai is my playground.
What did I study and what do I initially do?

Why did I choose Motivation as a career?
I did it to inspire people, to bring positivity among them.
- Help them discover their motivation and a positive perspective of the world around them.
- Help them decide what when and how to execute their plans.
- Develop the spark of motivation in them to building their vision for the future.
- Develop their drive and maintain their motivation when things get rough.
For me, it’s all about perspective…
How did I find my flair for Abaya Design?
Design has always been my passion and dream since high school. I always believed that it’s just a matter of time before I launch my own brand. I have always embraced the culture of “Abaya”, turning a basic garment into couture. Black is the presence of all colors, for me it’s the spoken color through which I can express my design. I got the flair through my culture and tradition, where I am at right now, I am watching my mother, sisters, friends and neighbors wearing abayas. But most of all I got it from my love to music, where each instrument has translated my design, so I worked on having a sophisticated and elegant piece of art reflecting music .
