Prior to starting her journey as a female entrepreneur and business owner in Boca Raton, FL, Sima had already experienced a rich and very full life on the other side of the world in a small town in Bharatpur, India in West Bangal – the same city where mother Theresa built her foundation. Although she was born into a culture where girls are often seen as a burden, she was graciously accepted and embraced by her father, an Indian school teacher, who raised her like he would a son showing love and affection. Her family history in India spans over 600 years with several schools and hospitals built by her family. One of her fondest memories is witnessing her parents feed the poor every week at their family house called Dewan Khana.
Soon upon my arrival to the U.S., Sima followed this family tradition of service toward others. She is a mentor for kids and is a member of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton so that she may better serve the local community. She graciously put aside her own personal life to care for a woman who was dying of cancer and desperately needed someone to take care of her. She quit her job and allowed this woman to have a peaceful death at home with the assistance of hospice. It was a calling to serve her needs and to lift her spirits. Through her business, Naturally Sima Salon, she offers a program called NOOR –offering complimentary hair services to foster kids between 16 – 20 years of age that are applying for a job or school interview. She is the mother of a beautiful daughter entering college in the fall at FAU.
