Wait...who is Tania Siddiqi?

Now residing in Dubai, Tania has been recognized by the press and by fellow advocates as a powerful figure for women in the Gulf. Her last short film, Melody, directed by Hana Makki, was awarded Best Acting Ensemble in the 48-Hour Film Festival. Her debut in the theater scene attracted media interest about both her on- and off-stage work, and the remarkable balance between the two that she has achieved. From the characters she writes and animates on camera to the humanitarian projects she has developed, Tania's commitment to empowering women is paramount in all of her endeavors.

Beyond her work in film, Tania is a philanthropist and activist, promoting women's empowerment in remote parts of the world. Proof can be seen in her work with Athena's Quilts, a socially responsible business that educates and encourages women towards financial independence in rural areas of the Middle East.
