Person of the Day: Special Edition – Hodho Ali

Remember the mysterious lady from the other day? Well, her name is Hodho Ali

She is a humanitarian aid worker with a local NGO.

I’d always seen her around in USIU during my long long long undergraduate study there and we never talked much like a whole lot of the USIU community. We struck up a conversation on a social networking site (won’t tell you which one :-P) a couple of weeks back and I was happy to invite her for a shoot last week. She’s someone I’ve been wanting to shoot  for a while now.

So, as always, I asked her what 3 things she wouldn’t mind the world discovering about her. First off, she’s a proud mother of one and she regards that as her best accomplishment. Secondly, she is quite sporty (in her words “though I might not look it”) and finally, she’s the youngest in her family and she loves her 3 brothers to death for toughening her up.

Now comes the most interesting bit of this blog post. My last question is usually, “what are your aspirations for the next 10 years?”. The answer Hodho gave to this question is the most thought provoking answer I have heard in a long long while. Her aspirations are, like everyone else, success, happiness, a comfortable life and a good career. But she would also want to be more spiritual, more educated and healthy.

This shoot was one of the most fun shoots I’ve had the most fun shoot I have had this year. Hodho showed up with her friend Oshin who was gracious enough to be shoot assistant, stylist and make up artist for the shoot (she called herself a good reflector :-D). In my opinion, Oshin should do this on a permanent basis. But that’s just me. Between the three of us, we had such a kick ass fun time, we almost forgot to take the pictures 🙂 Here’s a couple more shots of Hodho as well as some shots of Oshin that we took at the end of the shoot.

Finally, I must confess I was tongue tied for a while when these two showed up. The effects that beautiful women have on men. Tut tut tut.

Look out for a post tomorrow about some pretty jewellery 😀
