Welcome to my website. I am a 27 year-old magazine editor and freelance journalist based in the Middle East.
I am currently the deputy editor of Emirates Woman magazine in Dubai and was formerly an associate editor for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia in Dubai as well as the the editor in chief of Ohlala Magazine, a luxury fashion and lifestyle title available across Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar.
Starting off as a freelance journalist in London after completing my MA in Magazine Journalism at City University, London, I’ve written for Marie Claire UK, The London Evening Standard, The Telegraph, The Guardian and BuzzFeed UK while writing millennial blog posts on The Huffington Post UK. In 2014 I was shortlisted for the PPA’s Most Promising Postgraduate Journalist Award for my investigative feature on Female Genital Mutilation.
In my current role I manage the editorial production of Emirates Woman, write and commission features, work with the art director on the magazine’s redesign and also taken on an ambassadorial role for the brand at events.
I am also a certified crisis counsellor for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse and volunteered for Women’s Crisis Care International in Bahrain. In this role I was on hospital and hotline duty several times a month and involved in public engagement through community outreach by giving culturally sensitive talks on reversing gender stereotypes, feminism, healthy relationships and myths surrounding rape to audiences ranging from ministers to school students.
