About me
Zainab Khan is a London-based marketer. After beginning her career working at an e-commerce startup and FinTech startup, she went freelance to provide her services at agencies and to various brands. 
In her 5 years of experience, she has collaborated with over 30 brands across sectors including FMCG, Fin-Tech, fashion, beauty and many more. The focus has been predominantly on social media marketing, including but not limited to strategy, production, content, influencer activations and paid media.
 Her nomadic upbringing across 10 towns / 4 countries inspired her interest in cultural storytelling, leading her to curate three visual series: #coffeeandhenna, #affinityseries and #TrailblazingMuslimWomen. The Trailblazers series reached over 3 million organically and was featured in The Times (print), Stylist, Buzzfeed, Campaign and It’s Nice That. 

In 2022, she continues her freelance work with agencies, startups and small businesses.
