Ella Hussain

Having graduated in History and Politics from Warwick, Ella returned to Pakistan hunting for a job that would allow her to work for the intellectual empowerment of Pakistanis at large and women specifically. Fate led her to advertising and with every ad- story she wrote she fell more in love with the power of storytelling as a tool for behavioral change.

She’s presently in a loving marriage with her role as creative director/producer at Slingshot Films and is pregnant with a women’s program that’s the antichrist to morning shows. She describes herself as a proud Muslim woman fighting for the light.

Amafah Mubasher

After completing her bachelors in design, Amafah jumped straight into the world of advertising, only to realise it wasn’t for her. It was then that Amafah found yoga and fell in love with everything it did for her mind and body; the only logical step was for her to pursue her training and embrace yoga and fitness as a career. The decision wasn’t easy but she had plenty of support from her family and fiancé and she couldn’t be happier with the path she chose.
