MEET FARRAH

FARRAH MILLER IS A FIRST GENERATION PAKISTANI-AMERICAN. HER FAMILY MOVED HERE WITH THE HOPES OF WORKING AND ACHIEVING MUCH COVETED “AMERICAN DREAM”. A FAMILY OF SIX, FARRAH’S PARENTS INSTILLED IN THEM HARD WORK AND CURATED FARRAH AND HER SIBLINGS TO HAVE A POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE.

ALTHOUGH FARRAH WAS RAISED IN THE US, IT DID NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT HER PARENTS WERE FROM PAKISTAN AND, AS MANY IMMIGRANT FAMILIES DO, THEY HELD ON TO THEIR CULTURAL PRACTICES. IN DOING SO, FARRAH HAD AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE AT THE YOUNG AGE OF 19. VERY QUICKLY, AT AGE 20, FARRAH ALSO GOT A DIVORCE. FROM THIS TRAUMATIZING EVENT, FARRAH SUCCEEDED IN RISING, REDISCOVERING HER SELF-IDENTITY, AND PULLED HERSELF OUT OF THE DEPRESSION THAT IS TIED TO FEELING LOST.

NOW, FARRAH HELPS TRANSFORM THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO SEEK HER OUT AS A NUTRITIONAL, WELL-BEING, AND LIFE COACH.

 

WHAT DO YOU FOR A LIVING? IS THIS WHAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE DOING 5-10 YEARS AGO? 

NOT REALLY. I GRADUATED IN FINANCE AND BUSINESS MANAGEMENT AND HAVE BEEN IN A CORPORATE BUSINESS WORLD- MANAGING A HIGH-PROFILE BANKING CENTER IN DOWNTOWN DC FOR LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. 

I GOT MY CERTIFICATION FROM IIN IN NUTRITION HEALTH COACHING IN 2015. I WORK WITH BUSY WOMEN IN THEIR 20’S-40’S. I SPECIALIZE IN NUTRITION AND EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING. I KNEW I WAS BORN FOR GREATNESS; I AM JUST ALLOWING IT TO UNFOLD FOR ME, MY PATH RIGHT UNDER MY FEET. I WAS LED TO THIS PATH DUE TO MY OWN PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION, AND NOW I TEACH OTHER WOMEN HOW TO EMBODY BEAUTY AND CONFIDENCE FROM WITHIN, SO IT CAN RADIATE FROM OUTSIDE. I HELP THEM WITH NUTRITION AND MENTAL HEALTH.

I WANT TO CONTINUE TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO LIVE THEIR BEST LIFE, BY SHARING MY OWN JOURNEY. I LOVE BEING AN INSPIRATION-ROLE MODEL ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN. I WANT TO SEE EVERY WOMAN HAPPY AND LIVING HER LIFE’S PURPOSE, TO HER CORE. WOMEN SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND HONORED BY EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE.  

WHAT EVENT OR MOMENT OCCURRED THAT LED YOU TOWARDS YOUR PASSION?

I HAD AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE WHEN I WAS 19 YEARS OLD AND GOT DIVORCED AT 20. I NEVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN TO ME. IT WAS TRAUMATIZING EXPERIENCE, AND I LOST MYSELF FOR FEW YEARS. HOW I MANAGED TO COME OUT OF MY DEPRESSION AND MISERY WAS REINVENTING “WHO I AM” AND THERE ARE FEW WAYS I FOLLOWED WHICH HELPED ME IN MY TRANSFORMATION. 

I HAD A BURNING DESIRE TO SUCCEED IN MY LIFE, AND NOT BE A FAILURE.

I WANTED TO BE A HAPPY AND JOYFUL PERSON.

I WANTED TO LIVE THE BEST LIFE THAT WAS POSSIBLE FOR ME.

I WANTED TO MEET THE MAN OF MY DREAMS.

 AFTER I MADE CHANGES IN MYSELF, I HAVE EXPERIENCED ALL OF THE ABOVE.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR ANYONE TRYING TO PURSUE A SIMILAR CAREER PATH?

I WOULD RECOMMEND FOLLOWING YOUR HEART.  SHARE SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS YOU FACED, AND WHAT HELPED YOU OVERCOME THEM. YOU CAN IMPACT SO MANY WITH YOUR PERSONAL STORY.

WHAT WOMEN (OR MEN) INSPIRE YOU? WHY?

OPRAH IS A HUGE INSPIRATION FOR ME. I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET HER ONE DAY. SHE IS THE STORY I TELL MYSELF. THAT’S WHO I WANT TO HANG OUT WITH AND I DO NOT CARE HOW LONG IT TAKES ME. I LOVE OPRAH, SHE CREATED HER OWN DESTINY REGARDLESS OF WHAT WAS GOING AROUND HER.

 

WHAT DOES SUCCESS LOOK LIKE TO YOU? IS YOUR IDEA OF SUCCESS DIFFERENT FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION?

TO ME SUCCESS IS HOW MUCH FUN AND JOY I AM FEELING NOW. WE CAN HAVE ALL THE SUCCESS AND WEALTH IN THE WORLD BUT IF WE ARE NOT CONTENT AND HAPPY,  WE WON’T BE ABLE TO FULLY ENJOY THE SUCCESSES. 

WHAT HOPE DO YOU HAVE FOR THE FUTURE?

THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO BE ALIVE. I LOVE WHERE THE WORLD IS GOING. MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE AWAKENING AND UNDERSTANDING HOW WE CAN THINK BETTER THOUGHTS AND BE HAPPY UNCONDITIONALLY. WE HAVE CONTROL OVER HOW WE FEEL. THIS TIME IS ALL ABOUT CREATIVITY AND EMBODYING “WHO WE ARE” AND WHY WE CAME TO LIVE THIS SPECTACULAR LIFE. LIFE CAN BE HARD, BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO FEEL HARD. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE AND WHEN WE KNOW HOW TO SEPARATE THEM TWO, WE CAN LIVE A HAPPIER LIFE.
