The idea behind Bonanza Satrangi was to make clothes for the everyday Pakistani woman who expresses herself through her clothes and the way she lives her life. There are strong, courageous women all around us who we can look up to when we don’t feel too confident about ourselves. These are women who inspire us to pursue our passions and to fulfill our dreams. This Women’s Day, Bonanza Satrangi, has done something different. They have highlighted the journeys of 5 amazing women, each of which is inspirational in their own ways.

She is an artist, an illustrator, a writer and a poet, a student of life, and otherwise, among all the other hats she both literally and figuratively dons. She’s an artist who answers to a calling that only she can hear. Through her art and writing, Areeba aims towards breaking stereotypes and nullifying prejudices that have surrounded women for centuries. She does that while pursuing a formal education. At a young age, Areeba has managed to achieve incredible milestones for herself. She is our #IamSatrangi Woman.
