    Shazia - Top Design 2


    Shazia
    30,
    Plano, Texas


    Born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, Shazia was part of the first generation of American born children in her family. From a very young age her father pushed her to become a doctor, but after her first semester at The University of Texas at Austin studying Biochemistry, Shazia realized she was more passionate about redesigning her bedroom than anything that was going on in the classroom. Upon graduation, she accepted a position at the Gap as a visuals specialist, where she finally found the direction she needed. At the age of 25, familial and societal expectations thrown to the wind, Shazia entered The Art Institute of Dallas studying Interior Design. Three short months after graduation, she was awarded a contract with a multi-billion dollar healthcare services company and from there she started her own company, Egospace Interiors, Inc. Shazia is inspired by everything - the environment, politics, fashion, etc. She prefers her designs to be functional, with a touch of contemporary edge. In 2006, her apartment was recognized in Dallas' D Home and Garden Magazine and she was named the 'It' gal of interiors. Now at 30, Shazia is as successful and ambitious as ever. Her company is growing and she is taking on commercial/residential rehabs and clientele such as The Trelivings, whose patriarch, Jim Treliving, is star of CBC's Dragons' Den and owner of Boston Pizza International. By staying true to her deepest desires, whether business or personal, Shazia has mastered the ability to take on any challenge without letting fear of the unknown stand in her way.

    I'm assuming that she's of Middle Eastern extraction.

    Would she be considered as being the second Middle Eastern reality tv show contestant? Second to Kaysar from Big Brother?

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Her parents are from Pakistan. I hope she lasts long enough so I can see what she does on her own. She clearly had trouble asserting herself and seemed a bit ditzy. In her defense Andrea should not have casually told her to turn the water off in 5 minutes and disappear. They were all frantic to complete their tasks.

    Next Food Network Star had a contestant of Indian descent last season, Nepa, I think, and like Shazia, she seemed out of her depth. Shazia needs to stop screwing up or she will be out soon.

    I forgot about her green apple fiasco when I posted above. I don't give her very long if she could not see that the apples would not stay in the box without impaling them on a nail let alone the cliche of that fruit.
