Fine arts were an important part of Ayoub’s life from an early age, but it was through studying applied sciences and arts at the German University in Cairo that she discovered her passion for filmmaking. Majoring in Media Design, Ayoub started off as a producer for various film projects, which she later pursued as a career. After years of feeling like she needed a creative outlet, it took two years and 20 drafts to finally get to direct her first short film, “Yellow”.
