This interview is part of the Chasing Dreams interview series. I’ve interviewed a variety of entrepreneurs and small business owners who have chosen a different path in life in order to go after his or her dream career. Have an entrepreneur in mind you’d like to learn more about? Let me know!
Today’s interview is with Batani Khalfani, who was recommended by Crystal Chin (who I interviewed last year). Batani is a creative powerhouse, from fashion design to dancing, acting and writing. She also has a great positive outlook and is an inspiration for any multi-passionate women out there.
Let’s dig in!
At what point did you know you wanted to follow this career path? How did you know this was the right direction?
I was born to be who I am in all aspects. All of my talents are innate. I am self-taught in all that I do artistically. I am a self-taught designer, dancer, artist. When I was 4 years old I was asked what I “wanted” to be when I grew up. I said, “I’m going to be an architect, fashion designer, actor, model and dancer.” I am all of those things and soon I will be going to school for architecture.
