And you definitely need to be very, very strong about it, and, like, just don’t give up.”—Naddy Rahman

Naddy Rahman is a law graduate, part-time model and social media influencer. She co-founded the Alicia Sophia shoe brand with her sister Zana Rahman. Recently, during the MCO, she was stuck at home with little else to do as her work and holiday plans have to be cancelled. So, she started learning how to bake from her mother and tried her hand at making a few things. Her neighbours loved her baked goods so much they encouraged her to sell her cookies, cakes and bread. Thus, she has also co-founded Baked With Butter with her mother, a home-based business where people can book her baked goods to be bought and delivered. She is most proud of her “Roti Naik” which is a large, super-fluffy loaf that can be torn into smaller buns. The average shelf life of the Roti Naik is between two to five days when kept at room temperature, but the bread is usually finished in less than a day, so she keeps getting orders for Roti Naik regularly.
