“My store, Bombay Collection, is where my heart and passion is.” said Arifa as we looked around her store. 
Arifa is an entrepreneur and owner of a highly recognized bridal and evening wear boutique in Surrey, BC. She is also a mother to two daughters and grandmother to two lovely children. Arifa told me her grandchildren-- Ameerah and Aadam--make her laugh so much it hurts. Her family means the world to her, she told me what’s most important to her is keeping her family together and united. When she’s not at her store and spending time with her family, she loves to watch Indian soap operas and be creative with either sewing or craft projects. When I asked Arifa how she would like to be perceived she told me, “ I want to be perceived as successful and hardworking Muslim woman.”
