Ayesha Khan is an independent multimedia journalist and documentary filmmaker based in India. Her work is focused on issues of human rights, social justice, international politics and the environment. Before venturing into independent journalism in early 2023, Ayesha worked with major newsrooms in India, such as NDTV, Indian Express, The Hindu and Network18. However, after four years of full-time jobs, she realized that her true calling lies in working independently. Since then, her work has been published in South China Morning Post, FairPlanet, the Diplomat, Redstreamnet, among other international media outlets. A documentary on which she worked as producer and editor for pluc.tv won the Laadli Media Award and WAN-IFRA South Asia Digital Media Award in 2021/2022. Ayesha's work on women and child rights includes reporting on India’s child brides crisis, sex-selective abortions of female fetuses and limited access to education for young girls. She holds a Master's Degree in Convergent Journalism from Jamia Millia Islamia University, a course that had a significant impact on her life. It was here that she was also introduced to the powerful medium of visual storytelling, which laid the foundation of her career as a multimedia journalist and documentary filmmaker. Ayesha is a fierce believer in fighting inequalities and through her work, she aims to amplify the voices of the marginalized and the unheard.
