Rozan Ahmed is an internationally established writer, creative director, advisor, advocate, and popular commentator who plays an influential role in leading new frontiers and shifting attitudes in the worlds of fashion and entertainment.
She is deputy editor of the RWD magazine which she helped to make the United Kingdom’s biggest urban music and lifestyle publication.
Rozan merges the arts with social development and entrepreneurship and champions what she calls ‘cultural ownership’– taking pride in and embracing identity. She is breaking the barriers and connecting people between the diverse markets she works in: the United Kingdom, the Middle East, Africa, and the United States.
Rozan currently sits on the MOBO music panel and is an ambassador at the Young and Gifted Foundation, a distinguished member of the Royal African Society, an advocate for the We Want Peace organisation, Dubai’s Fashion Forward, Kenya’s Africa Yoga Project, and Sudan Change Now. She has also mentored for the Unreasonable Institute as part of the Unreasonable at Sea program, sailing from South Africa to Ghana in March 2013 alongside Richard Branson, Prince Fahad Al Saud and Desmond Tutu.
