The year 2020 was touted as one of the most challenging in recent history with the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic. Imagine being a young medical student at the epicentre of the pandemic while trying to juggle between life, family, business and school. Rida Zayn, CEO of Rida Zayn Cosmetics and 3rd Year Medical student in China beat those odds and kept life moving in her part of the world. She has been a business mind since the age of 13 and has not looked back since. So how did she move through life during this past year?
Rida Zayn’s Youtube channel gives you a true glimpse of what life has been in China since the pandemic began in early 2020. Rida has kept her cosmetic business growing on her website and still keeps her promise to donate 5% of all sales proceeds to charity. She is also not relenting in her quest to complete her medical degree and become a medical professional.
She continues to document her shopping routines, visits to various places all over China, health updates, cooking recipes, home life and interesting stories that she stumbles upon. She touches on her Ramadhan routine and how she celebrated Eid with her husband and she kept her over 200,000 subscribers coming back for more content.
Work and Photoshoots
Many of us spent a good amount of our time during lockdowns in pyjamas, unkempt hair and slippers around the house. But not Rida Zayn and this is because she understands the industry she is a part of. A glimpse into her Instagram feed will show you that she kept on working and sharing beautiful pictures with her followers. Gracious photoshoots indoors and outdoors while wearing products from her makeup line gave many of her followers hope and beauty to look at.
Family and Social Life
Rida understands that she signed up for a busy life of work, medical school and family life – and she loves every bit of it. She takes time on Youtube and other social media pages to share stories and experiences with her loving husband. She also has videos where she is spending time with friends while cooking and spending time with them.
The reason why Rida Zayn is an inspiration to other females in Pakistan and around the world is that she does not stop working on her life and her dreams. She is also not afraid to share her life and her work online and this continues to inspire others who want to venture into medicine and cosmetics. Rida Zayn can indeed do it all, pandemic or no pandemic.
