Madiha Ayub

I am Madiha, a young woman who just turned 25. Senior software engineer by profession, a baker by heart. Oh, I almost forgot I am an athlete, teacher, cook, designer almost all in one. I always wanted to be a Gynaecologist, but fate had other plans. No complains though, just realised after watching a lot of gore movies, that blood and me don't get along. LOL! You can call me a happy go lucky girl or the girl next door, but life hasn't been so happy for me. Anyway, after touring all the possible talents I have, I am now moving on to writing. This is a surprise as no one from my family has ever chartered into this area. But astonishingly, I found myself to write quite well. My mother-in-law says the flair with which I have written my first article ever, is beautiful! She almost cried after reading what young women go through, and since she's already a women's web contributor she has encouraged me to publish this article on a platform where it can reach many other women like us. So yes, here I am!
