Sakia is the founder of Travelettes of Bangladesh, a travel group of over 23,000 women who love travelling. Coming from a society that simply doesn’t allow for women to travel the world, Sakia is helping her countrywomen explore their homeland as well as the world beyond. She is working to change her country, empower women and inspire them to travel so that they grow to be free-spirited and independent.
- Travelling has always been my passion, but I grew up in a family where I wasn’t allowed to go outside without a male chaperone. I couldn't rid myself of the burning desire to explore Bangladesh. So I concocted a plan.
