* *Win at The English Asian Business Awards* *
It is ironic that a child of immigrant parents who came over to England in the 1960’s and had no interaction with any professionals would end up winning an award for The Best Professional in Business at The English Asian Business Awards this week. There were some amazing finalists in my category so I was completely taken aback when I won. On occasions like this, I realise how far I have come.
Growing up in the working classes of inner city Manchester gave us the resilience and self-belief that with the right attitude and work ethic we could achieve all our goals. Failure is never an option and despite struggles we never give up. At every stage of my career, I have always set my sights high. It is humbling to be a role model for the next generation but I just hope they realise that none of it has been achieved without an incredible amount of time and effort, sleepless nights and dedication to the profession. There really is no substitute for hard work.
It helps that I love my job and am passionate about fighting for my clients and getting them the result they deserve. We don’t just go the extra mile at Nayyars, there are times at the end of the day when I have driven home both mentally and physically exhausted, feeling like I have run a marathon. But I always look forward to starting all over again in the morning.
I am Principal Solicitor at Nayyars Solicitors and the award recognised it as a successful business. A lot of the credit should be given to the Nayyars Team who share my philosophy. I cannot thank my parents enough especially my dad, who had he been alive today would have been so proud. They gave me the best start in life.
Finally none of it would be possible without the support, love and encouragement of my amazing husband and girls who give me the opportunity to achieve.
