MUSARRAT MISBAH-AN INCREADIBLE WOMAN
I have spent my entire life making women look beautiful, somewhere deep inside me I knew there was something more I was supposed to do. I knew my life was meant to have another objective. I’m not saying that beauty is trivial, but now I’ve discovered beauty with a purpose. Helping the burn victims start a new life and regain their shattered self-esteem has given me an entirely new perspective on beauty. God has been very kind to me. Launching of the Foundation is a way of thanking God for everything I have today.”
