HI! I'M AVNER
As Kay Deane's founder, and personal assistant to Jhavaan Jabbar (my 3-month old baby), my days can get super busy. But it is always a labour of love! An Introvert at heart, there's nothing I love more than curling up cosily with a good book on a rainy day at home, with Norah Jones or Sade playing gently in the background. A good part of my childhood was spent attending whimsical tea parties in the garden, lovingly arranged by my grandmother for my cousin siblings and I. As an adult now, the appeal and fascination of a good tea party is still strong. I also love to go snorkeling, especially when I need a break from the humdrum of city life. I remember how much more the world has to offer, when snorkeling at sea. Music too relaxes me. But if I could only listen to one band for the rest of my life, it would be The 1975. I'd be more than content.
Life’s simple pleasures like the smell of fresh bed sheets and lavender make me happy. Healing crystals around the house and the smell of burning sage keep me centered. I find cooking and painting therapeutic, and they help me deal with moments of anxiety I experience on and off. My nephew Miqael and son Jhavaan are the twin lights of my life, and will forever be my reason to strive to be a better person. I find Trevor Noah super charismatic. I've had the same bestfriend since kindergarten. Being loyal and being real are two very important things to me. My childhood with my unconventional dad taught me to be open-minded and empathetic. If there is anyone in this world who knows all my secrets and all my passwords, it's my husband.
