Mahani Zubedy

Stories are how we understand the world and connect with others. They are the simplest and most effective tool to connect. I grew up in a community that spoke five languages. Because I was the eldest kid, I became the go-to interpreter, where I learned to use common sense and trust my instinct/heart. I stumbled into advertising as a young adult and LOVED it, helping brands like Cadbury and Coca-Cola create messages that stick. Every great communication is a story-information that creates emotion/feelings/reaction. If you are not telling stories, you are not connecting. Especially today when we still isolate and distance. We crave connection. I give women easy storytelling tools to connect and grow.

Mahani lives in Austin Texas, practices martial arts, and love boxing.
