The founder of ‘S Entertainment’ who currently owns its shares and runs it in her capacity as the CEO, has filled Insight in with her story!

Where does your confidence as a woman come from?

I believe in a bright future and my passion drives me so I was raised that being a woman is rather strength than weakness so I will work until I no longer have to introduce myself.

Why did you choose to specialize in production?

Production has more to it than what meets the eye, I guess if I had to choose my favourite element that was like a moving force towards production it would be the ability to give birth to art through a screen, applying what is only a thought or an idea to me is magic.

What are the biggest highlights in your resume?

I take pride in all of my work equally, which makes me want to push all the boundaries to ensure that any new project exceeds the one before, but the closest to my heart is Mosarha Horra `Open Discussion`

Was being a woman ever an obstacle for you?

When people think that there’s specific resistance for women to be successful, and I just choose to ignore that as an obstacle for two reasons: I can’t change my gender, and I refuse not to be successful so I consider being a woman as a blessing rather than an obstacle! And I believe that human beings are evaluated by their intensity and the ability to achieve and not by their gender and I always say “ let them watch you from overlooked to overbooked.”

What are the most important lessons you learned in your life?

That nothing comes easily. In order to achieve your goals you have to fight every day to be the best version of yourself and of course working from 9-5 is not enough at all.
