Ever wondered about the logo/brand image? Simple, its a capital Z with a crown on top. Want to know the backstory? I would be gladly to tell you…
I first came to London almost eight years ago, and I remember walking into my first Geography class in English. The teacher (Mr Collier) bowed down, handed me a book and said 'Here you go Zinah the warrior princess'. I of course was clueless of how he even came up with the name and just looked at him startled. He was happy to explain it and asked 'Haven't you ever watched Xena the Warrior princess?'.
Coming for Switzerland, we only spoke German, and pronounced my name 'Zinah' as 'Tzena' and pronounced 'Xena' as 'Exena'…this explained my confusion! And surly I have been watching 'Xena the warrior princess' everyday, but in German.
Now that I know, this nickname has been stuck with me ever since, and I proudly accepted it (know that I am nowhere near a warrior, let alone a princess!).
I've gone through quite few job titles...including 'blogger' which I no longer am. Being raised and having lived in five different countries/cities (12 years in London, 9 years in Zürich/Switzerland, 5 years in Al Hudaydah/Yemen, 1 year in Nairobi/ Kenya and 2 years in Mogadishu/ Somalia) has allowed me to naturally intertwine respectively unique cultures to form my own distinctive creative identity. My strengths include excellent creativity and analytical skills, specializing in luxury fashion, PR, content creation, marketing communications and publishing.
