It’s high time this world recognizes some amazing women around who are not only extremely talented working women but also good house care-takers and talented mothers to amazing kids. We have had some real examples of women empowerment from past as well. This is 2019 and this world acknowledges all the hardworking women. This not only counts women with big businesses or higher incomes but all those with home based ventures as well.
Today we are going to share about Cheena Chhapra who is one of those women who is extremely talented and blessed with amazing skills. Being a woman, she not only looks after home chores and her kids but also working as a fashion designer, artist and a part time doctor for her children with type 1 diabetes. Cheena Chhapra has been an inspiration for so many ever since she has shared her two cents about Diabetes on World Diabetes Day.
CHEENA CHHAPRA AS A PLUS SIZE DESIGNER:
Cheena Chhapra has been working as a plus size designer which we rarely get to see in Pakistan. She is someone who looks forward to empower woman of all ages, sizes and race. She lives by the fact that all women has the right to look beautiful and stay classy despite of their ages and sizes which is considered an odd to life in most of the countries. During Pakistan Fashion Week, 2018 in Karachi she introduced Plus-Size models for the first time on ramp. She is said to be the only Pakistani designer to participate in Moscow, Russia for their 70th Independence Anniversary.
CHEENA CHHAPRA AS A SOCIAL WORKER:
She runs a foundation by the name of "Cheena Chhapra Foundation (CCF)" and her motto is Help anyone & everyone. She has been working for and helping people who are suffering from Diabetes. She helps in setting up small businesses ventures like Snack Stalls and Fruit Carts for the needy. It’s not about how big or small your help is but your intentions, which matter the most. Do it with good intentions and see how it comes back to you!
CHEENA CHHAPRA AS A MOTHER:
Cheena Chhapra in her recent interview quoted, “Diabetes is not a disease it’s a condition”. She has 3 amazing kids out of which 2 of them are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She mentioned that it was such a big challenge for her at first. But the way this brave woman combats all the hardships and tackled with the disease says a lot about her mesmerizing self. She said that one has to be very positive so she harnessed positivity within herself, started taking control of things because diabetes is something you have to monitor time to time. We’ve seen mothers hiring maids to look after kids but she isn’t one of those. She has been an ideal mother for her kids. Not only did she maintained a good lifestyle but also a good support system for them.
Mothers are supposed to stay strong in times of need. We have less awareness in Pakistan regarding Diabetes. Anyone with Diabetes should have regular hospital visits. Insulin shouldn’t be considered as the last cure for this disease. People fear insulin which is very weird yet again the same issue of AWARENESS amongst the poor.
She has changed Ayesha’s perspective of life from darker to a brighter side by not only teaching her about living a healthy and good lifestyle but also how she can be a source of comfort for others suffering from the same disease. She said, you become your own hero in times of hardships and that is when you actually realize your own strength and will power!
Cheena Chhpra started teaching in the same school where Ayesha and Habib use to study.
On World’s Daibetes Day, Cheena wants to aware people regarding diabetes and its treatment. Stop considering it a disease. It’s mere a condition which need to be monitored and regulated time to time. Diabetic patients can live a normal life as you. Stop mocking them stop making it harder for them. Be humble, be kind and give them a helping hand at hours of need!
CHEENA CHHAPRA AS AN ARTIST:
Now this multitalented woman is working as an aspiring artist. She has been into painting on different mediums.
