What do you love most about your work:
My work allows me to use so many various aspects of myself—creativity, financial management, strategic thinking, to name a few—while still giving me space to grow and learn every day. That’s what I love about being an entrepreneur.

If I could go back in time, I would tell my 18 year old self: Samira, you are safe and worthy just the way you are.
Skincare product you can’t live without and why:
I cannot live without witch hazel, it makes me feel clean and fresh.
Go to workout song on your most recent playlist:
My go to workout song right now is "Diablo Rojo" by Rodrigo y Gabriela.
Your last great read and why you enjoyed it:
I absolutely adored the book Women Who Run With the Wolvesby Clarissa Pinkola Estes because it is a rite of passage for every woman and I wish I had read it a few years ago.
You decompress each day by:
I decompress each with a 5 minute meditation where I imagine elements of the earth (water, fire, soil, air) come into my body and feel them inside of my body.
The skill or sport you’re dying to learn:
I would love to learn to indoor rock climb.
Favorite pizza topping:
I love fennel sausage pizza.

My longest lasting friendship is with Melody Godfred who I just partnered up with to launch Fred + Far.
