Here’s an exclusive Indus Divas interview with the dynamic lady director, Hina Sheeraz itself:
1. Give us an insight about your company and work.
Sheeraz Tours is a one stop destination for all your travel needs. We book packages, tickets, visa, Euro rail, sightseeing, cruises, Taxi services, destination weddings, Mice conferences, honeymoon, forex etc.- you name it and we have it. We cater everything related to tourism.
2. Tell us something about you, your hobbies.
Apart from being a profession, I am a very homely person. My taste for good interiors always keeps me busy in doing something creative when I am at home. Travelling and interacting with different kind of people is my passion and I absolutely love it. Also, cooking new dishes for my family and friends makes me happy.
3. So, what excites you the most?
Taking up new challenges in life is what excites me; be it at work or in personal life. I always yearn for exploring more and that’s why I come up with new and exciting ideas in my business and I take it as a challenge to accomplish every new task successfully. According to me, every morning we should wake up with new and vibrant ideas for doing something fresh in life.
4. Tell us something about your personal life.
I am blessed with a very supporting and loving husband and two adorable boys. My elder boy, Aman is 16 and the younger one, Armaan is 6. They are both doing well and as my work demands me travel a lot, I have groomed my boys to be self dependent. So they hardly bother me but like other children they too love to be pampered from their mother. Sundays I dedicate completely to my husband and kids and it is only for spending quality time with family.
I got married when I was only 21 but then again, I never stopped fighting to make my own identity. I completed my MBA after my marriage and I have been a working woman since day 1. I am lucky to have had a very supportive and super encouraging mother-in-law who always told me to focus on my work. Although sadly she left us 8 years ago, everything that I have learnt from her helps me in facing the difficulties in life.
5. You seem to have a big corporation. You must have faced some challenges surely. Tell us about them and how you overcame them.
I believe that not everything can be a piece of cake and that challenges are a part and parcel of life. And yes, I sure have faced quite some challenges. But I always have faith in God and also in the inner strength in me which helps me a lot in overcoming challenges. No matter how busy I am, I always make it a point to spend some time doing what I love, that I call my ‘ME TIME’. For that particular time I keep even my mobile away and just concentrate on spending time with myself. I believe this helps me to become stronger, calmer and more focused.
6. Any messages for the young ladies out there who wish to join this field?
I prefer to talk and spend time with the young clan of girls as they have more innovative ideas than we used to have when we were their age; all owing to the age of internet. I feel that today’s young ladies are already so focused and clear in their vision that the only thing distracting them from achieving success is wanting to have early success. So, I will only suggest them one thing- go with the flow. The only success mantra in life is hard work along with right planning and implementation. Be strong and work in right direction. Don’t run for the show biz life and excel in your expertise. You will surely achieve your goal and make your mark in the society.
7. What are your future plans?
For future, we are planning some new ventures especially for my friends who are housewives. Now that their children are grown up and they want to keep themselves busy, I am coming up with a unique concept of work from home culture which will help them to earn and become independent as well as engage them in doing something creative.
