Beautiful,inspirational , ambitious and excellent yummy mummy Salama Mohamed is our wondermama of the month. The 30 years old wife and mother of two is from the United Arab Emirates.
Salama suffers from a condition called vitiligo, a condition which causes loss of skin color in the form of depigmented, or white, patches of skin in any location on the body. She has patches on her eyelid, hands and feet. Although she was raised by supportive and loving parents,the condition was a major source of insecurity for her growing up. That was of course until she decided to own her imperfections, be a blessing and enjoy the many blessings she has been given.
"We all have insecurities, I choose to wear mine proudly," Salama explains.
HUMANITARIAN AND BUSINESS WOMAN
Salama is the foundr of Pearl by S, an online jewelry store that sells a unique and modern fusion of seawater and freshwater pearls along with (18K and 21K) gold at affordable prices.
As for the inspiration for the brand Salama explains, “I’ve always loved pearls. My grandfather, my mother’s father, used to be a pearl diver so the appreciation for them runs in the family. I decided to launch my own collection as I couldn’t find ones that were affordable and that you could wear every day without feeling like you’re in really expensive jewellery.”
Pearl By S aims to celebrate something deeply connected with the Emirati culture, as well as fuse the traditional with the modern.
She is also an humanitarian- she is passionate about helping Rohingya refugees to survive the monsoon season.
Salama admits that juggling between family and business responsibilities can be difficult. However, organising your time and prioritising your duties can make things work.
ADVICE TO MOTHERS/WOMEN
Own your insecurirties; do not let them own and thus llimit you.
