The first thought that came to my mind when I heard that I had to interview someone, I was so excited. I knew who I was going to interview. Since I was a child, I always loved dressing up. Whenever I go somewhere, dressing up is always my favorite part. This could be the only reason why I decided to interview a person who currently has the career on clothing and stylish. Her name is Fiadar. Actually, she is like a sister whom I’ve known over a year from social network. It was quite easy to get an interview Fiadar.
Fiadar is thirty years old living with the family of nine members and she was the eighth of nine siblings. Fiadar, is a girl with talent, caliber, willingness and determination. But God seem heartless to her since she was born. Fiadar ‘s family faced a poor financial situation and she was thinking that in order to help the family financially, she had to drop out of high school. She said that, “I felt very bad and a bit mad at my parents because I couldn’t understand why my parents told me to drop out of high school. I thought that getting an education is the only way to get a better job.”
After dropping out of high school she ran a small bakery shop for eight months until she had a little fight with her father which changed her life totally. She decided to move out and then lived with her aunt. While she was living there, she helped her run the business and then was able to go back to school. Aside from this, she also signed up for beauty class in makeup. During this time she also worked as a part time make-up artist. Fiadar became very busy and tired because she worked part time as a make-up artist, helped her aunt run the business and also studied. Thus she then decided to drop out of university but it was not help to cover the cost of living for her own. (I felt bad for her when she mentioned this part.) However, she looked very proud of herself while she described her feelings about being responsible for her family and her own.
After she dropped out of university, she decided to open a small second hand clothes shop. I politely asked her that “what inspired you to conduct this business?” She replied me back that “I really enjoy dressing up for people, and when people come into my store, I suggest them individual outfit that make them look fantastic. They look really happy. I also like knowing that people’s happiness are increased because of what I do.”
Fiadar had owned the fashion shop for five years since she dropped out from Ramkhamhang University, Bangkok. She told me that “To establish a fashion business is not easy as what she think.” She started from the local market. She had to move around to get market space three times per day for three year; in the morning, in the afternoon and end up with night market. After she had enough budgets, she decided to open her fashion shop in a shopping mall. About three years later, Fiadar had chance to travel in Hua-Hin. She found that she loves this city and with her luck she found the place to open her shop in Hua-Hin Market Village. Then she decides to move to Hua-Hin.
I feel that Faidar only focus on fashion business.It makes me consider that “What it’s liked in this business?” When she answered this question I noticed that her eyes were extremely droopy. Then, she was raising her eyebrows back again. She said, “I have to organize schedules and pay attention closely to my finance and accounting because once I was betrayed by my employees so I learned from my mistakes. Catching up on trends is also hard moment for me because fashion is unstable. There are always new trends releasing every day.”
Escaping from all the confusions in Bangkok to Hua-hin, Fiadar had more time for herself, so she started learning about computer and all the Programs by starting with Photoshop, internet and web design until she became an expert. She turned herself to the online business by using social networking supported her online shop which is very famous. For me, she is a success person. I really like to know “what is it likes to become a real working women and successful at very young age.” She described with her confidence that she feel very proud of herself. She said, “Living without education is the great pressure ever in my teenager life. I went through almost everything and it’s not easy for me to deals with stress and pressure that surrounding me which I just want to get money to support myself and my family. But at the end, I can make it happened and I feel very proud of myself.”
All In all, from my point of view I think Fiadar is amazing person I’ve ever known. Since she went through the storm in her life she then realizes that life is about living. She said that, “It’s what should be yours will be yours eventually. But the more you pursue materialistic things the more ‘hungry’ you become and you’ll end feeling poor rather than rich.” I really impressed the way she think about life. Last thing that she left for me is she believes that anything is possible but she guesses fate plays a big part in our lives. She said that, “I’m not saying that people should rely completely on fate alone but with enough perseverance and hard work, people could at least make our life more meaningful than whatever it is at the moment.” I think this is very true statement of life and thank you to Fiadar for all the inspiration from this interview.
