EARLY DAYS & NAZ NOW

EARLY DAYS

Naz Mahika Khan was born in a small village in Fiji Islands. Her father was a small businessman while her mother was a homemaker. When her father’s business collapsed, he lost all hopes, and raising six children became difficult. That is when her mother went to work for a Garment factory and changed everyone’s lives with needs and a good education. Her mom would say, “no one will see whether you have food in your stomach, but your character, presentation, and nature will find define you, get an education and be self-sufficient.”

From an early age, Naz learned about hardship in the family, walking to school, taking care of household chores, and late-night assignments with sisters’ help. Naz is not a child raised with a golden spoon but a child with many golden opportunities. She feels blessed, fortunate, and grateful. She was lucky to get a job at a Radio Station in Fiji at 17, which was an accomplishment in the ’80s. During her college days, Naz received a Scholarship to study in India, where she acquired a Bachelor of Arts Degree before migrating to the USA.
