Dubai, UAE: Within a year of establishing ASCIRA Global in Dubai, COO Belynda Lee has now added another feather to her cap by realising a long-cherished dream of creating her own talk show focusing on women.
Titled ‘Spotlight with Belynda Lee’, the show is a half an hour casual tete a tete with women from different strata of the society who have an interesting story to tell. Inspired by her own struggles, Belynda initiated the show as part of her social responsibility to empower other women in any way she can.
‘The show is solely about putting the spotlight on other women who have proven their prowess in any field, be it business, entertainment or social welfare. We have rounded up an amazing array of women from different walks of life, and I want to showcase their stories while learning something from them too,’ said Belynda.
The first episode was filmed yesterday with DD Foxx, a multi-talented Lebanese Billboard Charting Recording Artist based in Dubai.
The show was recorded in the state-of-the-art ASCIRA Studio located in Marina Tower Dubai and will be broadcasted on ASCIRA’s social media channels.
