Today we’d like to introduce you to Sasha Uddin.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Sasha. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Henna By Sasha is inspired by the beauty of the country that my parents immigrated from, Pakistan. The culture, the art, and love that this country offers are impeccable, and out of these, my favorite form of art is henna. Henna is essentially art detailing on one’s hands that is a core part of celebrating festivities and joyous moments in life! Henna By Sasha isn’t only henna, though; it is a way to spread awareness about women’s rights and acid violence. I spend much of my time using my business to spread awareness on this lesser-known issue and raise money for victims.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been a relatively smooth road; however, I am lucky I am a very supportive circle of friends and, most importantly, my family. Making connections and raising funds to continue this, in the beginning, was challenging, especially since I was starting. Still, slowly but surely, I was able to spread my name via social media and by creating my website!
Henna By Sasha – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a professional henna artist specializing in south Asian henna art. If you need henna for a party, holiday or wedding… send me a message! As a company I am most proud of the henna community I have built and the amount of awareness that we have all spread together about acid violence. What sets Henna By Sasha apart from others is the quality of the henna used, and making sure I use natural ingredients to mix my henna paste.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Honestly, as someone in their early twenties, my definition of success is a bit shaky. Still, every day I know that I am doing some good in this world and that someone must have seen a post regarding the injustice women face, which genuinely makes me feel fulfilled—this feeling of being fulfilled in my everyday life in how I define success.
