It’s an honour for me to have Asma as me dear friend and confidante,” says Linda de Marlor, President of Tax-Masters.
My inspiration is… people that struggle and yet achieve their dreams with persistent and strong will.
My biggest career hurdle was… running a business that makes a difference in people’s lives and is not just profit-driven.
My greatest accomplishment… is my studio.
My idols… are my parents. I am grateful to them for sending me to the best schools and teaching me how to be strong and independent.
In five years I hope to… have multiple branches of The Hundred Pilates Studio. I dream of a day when I have made a positive mark in Emirati society and given back to my country, which believed in me.
Winning the Achiever Award… was so amazing. When Emirates Wonam Senior Editor Sophia Serin called out my name, I felt happiness and extreme joy in my heart. I wanted to hug her! I’m so grateful for the recognition.
