I often find it difficult to find a woman who is an inspiration, as well as a role model for something other than just her appearance. One of the few women who I do consider to be an inspiration for her talent and knowledge is Malini Saba. Malini Saba is one of the world’s top investors as well as a philanthropist of South Asian origin. Not only does Saba have a huge impact in the cooperate world, she also spends a lot of time, money, and effort on charity and research foundations. In 2001, Saba started Stree: Global Investments in Women, which is a non-profit organization that changes the way low income and at-risk women see themselves. They deserve to see themselves in a higher light than they are often portrayed and Saba tries to make an effort to show them that.
Also back in June 2005, Saba donated one million dollars to start off the world’s first Heart Research Center for South Asians, she chose the El Camino Hospital to start off the research center. Saba also managed to invest her experience in more than twenty technology companies, this includes well-known companies such as Paypal and Sycamore Networks, inc.
Malini Saba is truly an inspiration to me, and I am sure many other women and people my age. Her main role is Chairman of the Board at Saban Group of Industries, but clearly, that is not all that is on her mind. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California but she is highly traveled and understands the struggles other countries face, and she tries her hardest to make her impact on society in a beneficial way.
One of the elements I find most inspirational about Malini Saba is that she is full of self-made success. Nobody helped her achieve her goals, and she worked hard all of her life to fulfill her dreams and ambitions. She grew up in a middle-class family in Australia and made the choice to move to the United States of America at the young age of just nineteen. She is also very passionate about helping other women and young children achieve their own goals as well, she wants to spread her achievements as far as they will possibly spread. Even though she is achieved quite a lot already in her lifetime, she is not done yet and has many more endeavors ahead of her.
