To ensure her opportunity identified was feasible, Fariza interviewed 200 Japanese managers and 500 international employees about the global work environment and cultural miscommunication. With this information, she created a database and seminar content to help Japanese companies perform better in the global business environment; thus, the launch of SOPHYS Corporation.

From her work and contribution to other businesses, Fariza was nominated for the British Chamber of Commerce in Japan's Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2017.
