Who are Sara Al Madani's parents? 'RHODubai' star feels she's lived up to her dad's expectations
'My father has always told me that I had a mindset bigger than my age and I would do things differently from other kids,' the reality star said
It's always been about vaulting adversity entrepreneur and Emirati social media influencer Sara Al Madani. Born and raised in the UAE, she is one of the new 'Real Housewives of Dubai' cast members and is a familiar and inspirational face to young women. Starting off her first business at 15, she co-founded HalaHi, a product, and services company that has the unique feature of allowing users to get personalized messages from their favorite celebs. Add to this her involvements in a beauty brand company, an investment management firm, and being the youngest on the board of the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Sara's had quite the journey.
And she credits her father for it. In an interview with the Gulf News, Sara said it was her father who noticed that she had the sort of a mindset that separated her from most kids in their teens. She was headstrong a cut apart from the rest. “My father has always told me that I had a mindset bigger than my age and I would do things differently from other kids. I believe I have lived up to his expectations. At 15, I became an entrepreneur by launching my fashion label that specialized in customized abayas for women,” she told the outlet. Clearly, her parents have been the driving force for the reality TV star.
Who are Sara Al Madani's parents?
Sara is the eldest of the three children born to Abdul Wahab Al Madani and Asma Al Madani. Her father, formerly an aerodynamics engineer, is now a supply chain manager. Asma is a retired teacher. Her sister Hind works for the government and her brother Hamad is an engineer. While she resides in Dubai, her family is all back in Sharjah. Sara, in her interview with the media outlet, had even outlined how her first gig was self-funded despite her father noticing her acumen.
“I did odd jobs. I took part in public events. I also did some modeling. Over time, I had saved Dh25,000 and I put it all into my business,” Sara said. “I ran errands for family members, bought candy from shops, and sold it at a higher price to family and friends to make the money. I always had that entrepreneurial spirit. I don’t know from where I got it,” she explained.
Sara will be one of the six members of the show. Joining her are Caroline, Nina Ali, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, and Lesa Milan. The official logline, per Bravo, reads: "While living extravagantly in a city that's dripping in gold, the women of Dubai "run the town" while learning about love, challenging friendships, and pushing their businesses to new heights."
'RHODubai' is set to premiere on June 1 at 9 pm on Bravo.
