Amira Geneid

A lady boss knows her worth and never settles for less than what she deserves. That pretty much sums up Amira, founder of Zahara, a cosmetics company offering beauty products for Muslim women. Despite being less than two years old, the brand has drawn interest and funding from numerous foreign investors. She takes pride in developing new products and is passionate about causes to improve gender equality, such as equal pay and having women in top management roles.
