A talented entrepreneur, Maria Umar is the founder of 'The Women's Digital League'. Maria was a school teacher and after being refused maternity leave, she quit her job. Later she started writing for another lady, who she had found through the well-known job portal Rozee.pk.
One thing led to another and Maria found her employers oDesk profile. She then realized that she too could directly contact clients and help herself out better. These became the origins of a humble content creating business.
She set up her own oDesk account, gave away a few jobs of writing starting from, her own family. Gradually it became what we call 'The Women's Digital League'. This company gives a chance to all the educated young girls to get a job in the digital world.
The key is the positive utilization of social media that helps writers connect with the clients across the globe. The company has been expanded to 'The Digital League', a platform for Pakistan's digital workforce, which provides digital solutions to individuals and corporate clients. Maria truly believes in the empowerment of women and has continually played her part to show her conviction.
