Speaking Engagements

Sharing my love of storytelling
with the world.


My powerful story telling skills grips the hearts and minds of my global audience. I share my journey from tribal Balochistan to creating sustainable opportunities for women, as well as my experiences as a tribal female entrepreneur. I have been an activist for more than a decade; I am a founder and entrepreneur and I do not shy away from sharing my setbacks, failures and challenges.
