Born on February 28, 1994, Safa Baig, wife of former Indian Cricketer, Irfan Pathan had quite a sumptuous lifestyle ever since her childhood. She was born to Saudi-based businessman, Mirza Farooq Baig and was raised like nothing short of a princess. She also had four other siblings growing up, Sidra, younger to her, and three more sisters. She still maintains a rare bond with each one of them, but the one closest to her in the family is arguably her mother.
Growing up Safa wasn’t much outgoing but that doesn’t mean she was very quiet either. Her amazing persona was always accompanied by a lovely smile on her face. She did her schooling at the International Indian School in Jeddah.
Safa was supported by her parents in whatever she wished to do with her life. Coming from a conservative Muslim family, modeling was never an easy path to go down on. Nevertheless, with her support from the family, mesmerizing looks, and her commitment, Safa managed to enter the modeling industry and go after her dream career. She had a flair for art too, as she picked up nail painting as well at an exceptionally tender age. Her childhood was only the time when she began showing that she is simply an ideal precedent of beauty with brains.
Safa Baig was an extremely determined girl but had lots of hindrances to get through and make her dreams turn into reality. Initially, it was her family background, and next was the cutthroat competition in the modeling industry. With the family supporting her every step of the way, the foremost obstruction was cleared without much difficulty. The next one however involved a little struggle from Safa’s end. Her good looks were never going to be enough to see her climb to the level she deserved. She required a little more and but in a very short time, she had developed all the absent qualities to become one of the most popular faces in the Gulf.
She began appearing on covers of several top-ranking magazines in the Gulf region. However, she decided not to stop there, she went on to become an executive editor at a PR firm in Jeddah itself.
Safa managed to keep her love for art alive through whatever she did, making sure it stays on top of her priority list. So, she began doing nail art, and that too at a professional level. She started showing off her skills on her official Flickr page.
