Outline:

Boutique magazine Jungle – published six times a year, online and on-demand print – invites submissions of exclusive material about the uniquely bold and beautiful in the arts, fashion and music.

An advocate of creativity, Ali launched the magazine as a celebration of originality. Contributions are welcome from writers across the globe – providing they explore novel, trend-setting forays into the artistic, musical and fashionista fringes.

Contributors are also encouraged to showcase their own creative output via the magazine which means that each edition is a rich repository of original artworks; stunning photography; and highly readable, informative features generally about the little-known.

I love what I do. Following my dream – rather than my degree – has sometimes felt like a big gamble, and my learning curve has been almost vertical at times, but with self-belief, determination and a lot of hard work I’m building a career in the creative industries of which I’m very proud.
