Every now and then we come across a story of a young entrepreneur that truly inspires us and melts our heart just a little. The story of Sweet Zeek is no exception, as this young teenager took a significant moment of her life and turned it into an amazing opportunity to share her courage and quirky personality with young women around the world:
My name's Zenab, and well, I'm a bit of a geek. I'm the kinda girl that loves comic books, sci-fi, video games, and anything to do with The Simpsons.
I used to be teased a lot in school for being nerdy. I never really liked sports or cared much for fashion, and never really thought of myself as being one of the "pretty girls". But my older sister Aisha on the other hand is really beautiful and super athletic, and I've always looked up to her. And well, she's the reason I started this website.
You see I've always admired her makeup skills and how she carries herself with such confidence in everything she does. Her lipsticks seemed to be the key to her confidence and I was always fascinated with how she applied them so quickly and evenly. Sometimes while standing outside her door, I'd watch her put her makeup on, hoping she wouldn't see me spying on her... but I think she always knew I was there.
One day Aisha had to go away to college and was moving out from our parent's home. It was probably one of the saddest days of my life. But on the day she left, I found this note on my bed:
I wanted you to know how awesome it's been living with you at home ever since you were born. You've taught me a lot about being a big sister. Your creativity and imagination have always inspired me and I'm totally jealous of how you can kick-ass in almost any online video game!
However, before leaving for college, I wanted to share a very special secret with you. You might not realize it, but everything that makes you unique and different is what makes you beautiful and strong. No matter what anyone says, you are not a geek. In fact you're a "ZEEK" - Someone so nerdy, that it's cool.
Always be true to yourself and always be proud of how different and special you are. If you can do that... the world is yours.
Love your big Sis,
P.S. I left some of my favorite lipsticks for you. Enjoy ;)
