This International Women’s Day, Meet Bazila

March 8, 2018 / Pakistan

We are thrilled to celebrate this International Women’s Day with Bazila in Dubai. Meet Bazila Malik, a textile designer from Quetta who won an all—expense paid trip to Dubai on her way to work. Bazila was one of the lucky winners who found a ticket to watch the #HBLPSL 2018 cricket matches live. Bazila moved to Lahore to study from the National College of Arts, after which she decided to stay back in Lahore to advance her career. 

How long have you been using Uber?

I consider myself one of the early adopters. I have been using Uber since it first launched in Pakistan. It instantly seemed like a game changer.

How often do you use Uber?

Uber is my go-to means of travel. I use Uber on a daily basis, to and from work and also, for all the trips I make during the day. My mind has automatically filtered out other means of transport now.

How do you think Uber has changed the way you travel? Would you recommend it to friends and family?

As a girl living independently in Lahore, Uber has changed the way I interact with the city. Because it’s safe, I am comfortable while commuting to work. When my family visits, I book their rides through Uber. I can track their location and in a way it brings me peace of mind. I would love if Uber launches in Quetta as it would solve a lot of transport problems there.

How is your experience in Dubai so far?

My experience in Dubai has been really nice—I got to spend Women’s Day with two female managers at Uber seeing the city. I not only got to watch the matches live, I also had the chance to explore the city. Everyone from the Uber team has been helpful and supportive, and I can’t wait to see what else Uber will bring me next!
