Rufina Barkat - August's WonderWoman - Month of Beauty

Posted by Avanti Women Jul 31, 2017

Rufina Barkat, Certified Fashion and Style Consultant is helping women enhance their beauty and lifestyle while creating a better version of themselves.

1. What do you love most about the work that you do?

I can be a source of change, creative and most importantly enhance people‰Ûªs beauty and lifestyle, thus bringing more awareness of their self-worth.

2. Who is your favorite superhero? And why?

My favorite super hero is Esther ‰ÛÒ from the Bible who is also a hero of faith. Why? She was faithful, bold and courageous. She used her wisdom and power for the right reason i.e. to fight for her people and what she truly believed in.

3. What are you most excited about? 

I am most excited about the extraordinary possibilities of empowering women by enhancing their beauty and lifestyle, creating a better version of them.

4. If you had to give one key ingredient to your recipe for success, what would that include?

I don‰Ûªt read impossible I read, ‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm ‰ÛÒpossible‰Û. Positive thinking and positive affirmations work for me.  I believe when you think positively and have a positive attitude the universe throws it back to you.  I will sum it up in a quote by Margaret Thatcher- â€°Ã›ÃWatch your thoughts, for they will become actions. Watch your actions, for they'll become... habits. Watch your habits for they will forge your character. Watch your character, for it will make your destiny.‰Û

5. What advice do you have for women who are entering your profession?

My advice for women is to find their true calling. Once they do they will be like a rocket launched in space; the sky would be their limit. Research, network and most importantly believe in yourself even if no one does, as we are not ordinary but extraordinary; surround yourself with people who believe in you and push you towards your destiny, and get rid of naysayers. Be your biggest cheerleader.

6. How do you define success?

Although success is immeasurable, but if I were to define it I would say success is the measure of impact/influence I have had on people who came across in my life, thus, inspiring them to follow their dreams, push their boundaries and set the bar high for themselves.

7. What is your favorite book?

    Lean In ‰ÛÒ Sheryl Sandberg
