I always find it difficult to write about myself and when asked what I do, despite doing this for over 3 years I still stumble on my words and mumble something along the lines of 'uhh I do design...' which makes things very awkward because it always almost sounds like I just made that up. Yeah...I really need to work on my elevator pitch hey.
I'm going to try and make this a little less awkward, my name is Naeema and STUDIO NAYMA is my little 'uhh design...' business that was born through procrastinating my uni assessments and soon became my passion. What started in a little corner of my study desk has now evolved into a studio in our home and I wouldn't have it any other way. Aside from being a business, my real aim with STUDIO NAYMA has and will always be to serve a purpose and ultimately make a difference in the world. I want to show the beauty of Islam to not only those that currently see it in a negative light, but also for every single one of us. If you're anything like me, you may just need that little bit of motivation to get through every day.
I am also a new mama to our beautiful baby girl, Asiya. I love everything to do with pregnancy, birth and motherhood and share my thoughts and journey on this blog and my Instagram too. I have always wanted to be a mother and I believe in becoming one I have found my purpose, it is a huge part of who I am.
Here you can follow my journey through my hand lettering and graphic design - skills that my Lord has so generously blessed me with and that I pray to utilise in spreading the beautiful message of Islam.
