Thoughts of a Mum - Sawsan Ghanem

Sawsan Ghanem, an Arab mom and Founder and Managing director of Maya's Closet.

1. The best advice my mum ever gave me is...
Always be true to yourself and follow your dreams… Never live in regret!

2.What's the one thing you got from your mum and you'd like to pass down to your kid?
Enjoy life, and always be proud of who you are and your achievements. Never accept second best.

3. Share with us a lesson that motherhood has taught you.
Patience and enjoying the ‘moment' bliss!

4. What's your favorite part of being a mum?
Spending precious time with my daughter, chatting, playing, singing, messing around, laughing. No words can sum up the emotions I get seeing my daughter’s character develop in front of my eyes. I often catch myself staring at her in awe, and find it incredible that we created this amazing human being. There’s nothing like it

5. Recommend a survival kit to the new mums out there.
Enjoy every minute and take everything in your stride. Your child picks up on your mood, tension and more, they are incredibly observant and intuitive, so stay calm and the rewards are priceless. Also, don’t pay attention to those who are always ready to give their advice or ‘interfere’ in their own way, you are the mum and know what’s best for your child. Always follow your instinct as it's never wrong

6. What's the oddest thing you have carried in your handbag as mum?
I think once you become a mum, there’s nothing that can be classed as odd in your handbag! I feel like Mary Poppins a lot of the time. The contents of my handbag always pleasantly surprise me and come to my rescue! Phew…

7. Do you get in the way of your kid's fashion choices?
My daughter is at the age now where she takes part in the decision making process when we go out shopping for clothes. She definitely knows what she likes and doesn’t like and already has the shopping bug!
