Yasmeen spent a decade in corporate communications before pursing writing full time; her first career gave her a wealth of experience and commercial edge that still informs her work today. She writes comedy and drama and very much enjoys the space between the two. Yasmeen is into her third year of writing on BBC EastEnders and is also enjoying success with digital productions. Passionate about radio as well as telly, she is an award-winning radio presenter, with years behind the mic in both live programming and documentaries. Platforming under-represented voices and stories is at the heart of all her work.
Yasmeen’s goal is to become a respected show runner, to make rom-coms, and help shape a more inclusive industry.
