Aamina Sheikh – Actress
PAGE Global Brand Ambassador
Aamina Sheikh is one of South Asia’s most versatile personalities, critically acclaimed for her work across film, television, and print.
A graduate in Film Production from Boston, Aamina is a multiple award-winning actor instantly recognizable for her extensive work on television and in film across a rich diversity of feature films, television series, and telefilms. She is also sought after as a celebrity model and ambassador and has worked extensively with the cream of the Pakistan fashion industry marking innovative collaborations to merge high fashion and performances to evolve the two mediums in newer avenues previously unexplored in Pakistan. Aamina is also a jury member on the official Pakistani Academy Selection Committee, judging and selecting films for the Foreign Film Category.
Aamina is committed to PAGE’s mission- a cause close to her heart:
‘Over the years, my career as an actor has led to a place of influence in the hearts and minds of our mass audience in the public arena. It is a blessing indeed and also an opportunity to be an influencer and an ambassador of change. More than ever before, the timing feels apt to align with a cause of social restoration with an elevated vision of impact at massive grassroots levels in Pakistan.’
A revolutionary change of any magnitude requires a sincere collaboration of conscious awareness, resources and mobilizing action. With the current times marking a global shift in gender consciousness, it is essential that Pakistan works out basic means of equipping its young girls and boys with skill sets and tools to harmonize a progressive co-existence and a healthy present and future. Providing quality education in schools is one integral means of achieving this. The looming stats of today, however, exhibit a stark difference in % of girls out of schools versus boys in Pakistan. The former being at a staggering disadvantage due to age-old cultural and societal limiting beliefs.
Change beckons. Time is of the essence. Hence, PAGE rises to the occasion with a massive mission of building and equipping schools especially for girls to stabilise this gender disparity in the existing education system in Pakistan. PAGE has managed to bring together a panel of the most credible individuals and committees in their respective fields to align together in this cause as a force to be reckoned with. I am deeply honoured to be given the opportunity to align with this force to spearhead and trail blaze their effort forward to turn a new page for girls in Pakistan. May Allah equip us and help us in all our efforts to make a tangible difference where it is most needed. Ameen!
