About the Author: For Pakistani journalist, Zofeen Ebrahim, the path to journalism was never a "carefully thought out" or a "planned" career choice. It was as if she was being led towards it. After graduating, and completing her master’s degree, she got married. "I had no clue what I wanted to do or even if I wanted a career." A small inconspicuous advert in an English daily changed all that for her. Seven years later she left the magazine, Women's Own, after serving as its editor and joined Pakistan's largest English daily, Dawn, and worked there for another seven years. Today, she freelances for several national and international media organisations and writes about issues that touch her heart. She has been commended nationally as well as internationally for her work on development issues.
