A Quick Rundown of My Life:

  1. πŸŽ‰ I'm the girl behind the blog. I started AnonymouslyZara at the beginning of 2022 (and what a year it's been!).
  2. πŸš€ When I'm not blogging on here, I help others bring their brands to life through copywriting and content marketing.
  3. ✨ My faith plays a huge role in my life. I love learning more about Islam, and currently in the process of perfecting my Arabic.
  4. πŸŽ™ I host a weekly podcast with my best friend, Hafsah. We've reached nearly 100,000 listeners since 2020, in over 50 countries.
  5. πŸ’“ Before my writing days, I loved working in skincare (both in clinics and retail)
  6. πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸΌ Oh – I'm also a full-time fun-lovin' aunty to 8 beautiful nieces and nephews who mean the absolute 🌎 to me!

But back to the writing stuff ✍🏼

I've been doodling in diaries since I was a kid (I have a pretty awful obsession with cute notebooks and fancy pens!).

During my uni days, I gained momentum with my writing and published my first article – but I still had that doubtful voice in my head making question it all.

Fast forward to a year later, I pushed aside my fears and finally opened up my own online home in the form of Anonymously, Zara. πŸŽ‰

So here I am..

A twenty-something, British Muslimah surfing the creative industry and figuring out this peculiar thing called 'life'.

Everything you read here is documentation of things I've actually learnt and stuff I'm – honestly – trying to figure out like:

  • How do we truly strike a balance between deen and dunya?
  • How to work in corporate as a Gen-Xer
  • Where to find the time to work, study and nurture my hobbies
  • What's the secret to maintaining relationships?

And so many more exciting, thought-provoking questions of the world.

So, whether I'm trying to land big career opportunities πŸš€, getting to know my religion more 🌻, or even going through major life changes in my twenties πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ – I'll be sure to tell you about it all.

Grab a cuppa, join the club, and immerse yourself into this online home of stories, life lessons, experiences, and everything in between.
