Hi, my name is Farhein aka Fari. I was born in a Muslim family on one of the most important Hindu festival (i.e. Choti Diwali). After living in several cities in India (thanks to my Dad’s transferrable job), I decided to move to New Zealand. While family (Mom, Dad and Brother) is in India, I am living in New Zealand all by myself. Even though I miss my family, friends and my country, but still I like it here in NZ. As an immigrant, I have my struggles to deal with but the sound of waves on beaches, the feel of fresh air in the mountains and having a leader like Jacinda Ardern, makes it all worth it.
I love travelling (and most importantly solo travelling). I enjoy dancing and singing, the only problem is I can dance but I am can’t sing. I love capturing moments especially the one which makes me feel alive. I sometimes write too but I consider myself as a shy writer mainly because most of the times I don’t post my write-ups because this confident independent single woman fears of being judged (yeah sometimes).
When I am not travelling, dancing or clicking pictures, there is a high chance I am at my 9 to 5 job. I work as a Business Intelligence Analyst for Counties Manukau (NZ Govt Health Sector). I am passionate about my work. Since childhood, I have been all about making a difference in this world. Apart from charity and volunteering work that I do, I spread awareness on emotional and mental wellbeing and how we can use technology at its best to do the same. As a part of Health Intelligence team, I build and maintain relationships with stakeholders; I investigate and build reports for/on different departments in the hospitals, for doctors and clinicians.
My actual name i.e. Farhein means happiness and that’s one thing is really important for me – to be happy and to spread that happiness. As a human, we experience a lot of different emotions and I believe an emotion like sadness can also bring you some kind of happiness, if you feel heard, relatable or/and feel changed (for good). This blog mainly revolves around that. Here you will see me sharing what I feel and what I have experienced – success, failures, planing my goals, re-planning my plans, falling in love, having a heartbreak, moving on, achieving my goals, travelling solo, feeling a new city, being in a new continent, living in a new country or just dressing up and enjoying fashion. This blog is made of little things. As nothing really matters, except these little things. 😉
I hope you enjoy and feel a positive emotion while going through this blog. It will mean a world to me if I made you smile even for a millisecond while you were here.
