05 Nov From Pakistan to Marietta: Kvalito owner, Shahid Hassain
Born in Pakistan, Shahid traveled to the UK with his family when he was 10 years old.
He loves the Liverpool soccer (football). Shahid was always confident, even though he couldn’t speak the language. He struggled until college, when he picked up his game. He studied information technology (IT) and graduated in 1998. As an IT guy, he learned to listen and was empathetic to people’s struggles with technology.
Shahid shares his biggest IT tip with Bill, turn it off and turn back on again.
When Shahid looked for to change countries he considered several places: Turkey, Canada, Dubai, and great thing for us he chose Marietta, Georgia, USA.
Shahid started Kvalito with clothes and accessories, a lot with the Asian flavor.
Kvalito comes from the international language of Esperanto meaning ‘Quality’ or ‘Degree of Excellence’. I think he is on to something…
