Farah, an avid baker, yogi, with a 30-year career in the banking industry across continents. Her mother-daughter relationship memoir Meher & Me is a tale of an unconventional life and courage developed through a combination of nature, nurture, and skills acquired along the way. It is a memoir about the life we choose for the lessons we will learn. Farah is of Parsi origin, was born in London, but raised in North India, where she was educated at a Catholic convent in a historic Muslim city, surrounded by Hindu mythology. She is a British national with an Indian heart. She has embraced the different facets of her identity, and considers herself a citizen of the world, with the ability to straddle different cultures and geographies with ease. She works in the banking industry, where she started as a trainee aged eighteen in London, having built her career over the span of thirty-plus years across continents. In her personal life, following the untimely loss of her mother, Farah, struggling to reconcile the mysteries of life and death, embarked on an inward quest to find the strength to overcome the traumatic family tragedy and other significant life challenges. Through self-healing practices ranging from baking to yoga, Farah was able to find a positive conduit to channel her loss and pain, finally arriving at a place of equanimity. Farah is based in Dubai where she has lived for the last two decades. She has two adult children, who are embarking on their life journeys. In her spare time, Farah is an avid baker and dreams of owning a cafe one day. Her other passion is Yoga, and she can often be found on the mat, at a class across Dubai. https://www.farahpress.com/ https://www.griefgratitudeandthegrayinbetween.com/
