Ms. Dilshad Vadsaria will be one of our speakers at 2019 Annual Event: Seize the Opportunity

Ms. Dilshad Vadsaria is a Hollywood Writer, Actor, Director, and Producer. She has acted in over 100 TV episodes including the shows Greek, Second Chance, Revenge, Bones, Notorious, Cloak & Dagger, Murder in the First, Castle, Faking it, NCIS, The Librarians, Melissa & Joy and CSI Miami.

After having acted in over 100 episodes of television, Dilshad finds her penchant for storytelling naturally expanding. The short film, Shazia, will be Dilshad's writing and directorial debut. The story follows a young girl, Shazia, and her detached mother, played by Vadsaria, living on the outskirts of society. During the course of an afternoon, the two find strength within themselves and each other, leaving us with an immense sense of hope.

It is Dilshad's deep belief that hope gives us strength and it is with this strength we are able to break down insurmountable barriers. The goal of Shazia is to reach audiences, especially young girls and women, around the world, to leave them with a sense of hope and strength where positive messages are rarely depicted for them or about them.

Dilshad is extremely excited to start this new chapter in her journey as a storyteller.

Very interesting new satirical book coming up revealing the dark side of the fashion world. The author is Pakistani American and former fashion editor for New York Magazine, Ms. Amina Akhter. Given how many young women are interested in fashion, I think she would make for an inspiring speaker for a future OPEN conference event. Her book is set to release on September 11th at New York Fashion Week.
