Three weeks ago, out of the blue, I received the loveliest email, informing me that I had been nominated, voted on and reached the finals of a national annual awards in the “Rising Star” category. Even as I write this post, I’ve no idea which lovely person (or persons) nominated me for this award so if it was you, a HUGE thank you to you.
The awards in question are the English Asian Business Awards, (EABA), now in their fourth year, recognising the achievements and contributions made by Asians in all forms of business in the UK.
As one of seven finalists, I’m totally not expecting to win, but I’m feeling hugely honoured to have got this far.
If you’re reading this on Monday 8th June, depending on what time of day it is, I’m either getting glammed up with hair and makeup for the very special evening event, or I’m sitting there at the table feeling very nervous. Or perhaps you’re reading this late at night or even after the 8th, in which case I’m either totally ecstatic that I’ve won or happy just to have got to through to the finals if I didn’t win.
Either way, you can bet I’m super excited at each and very point!
Stay tuned for a GRWM video that’ll be coming your way soon, and check me out on instagram, twitter, snapchat (ambarina.hasan) and periscope (AmbarinaHasan) (which ever ones you’re into) for outfit posts and regular updates from the event.
Wish me luck!
