Tanzila Khan is an entrepreneur, activist, and public speaker from Pakistan. In 2022, she won the Amal Clooney Women’s Empowerment Award by the Prince of Wales in London for her service. She was born with a deformity and has been a wheelchair user since then. She initially traveled for her disability advocacy, networking for business and speaking engagements but then learned about accessibility across the travel industry, helping companies become more accessible through feedback across 20 countries.

She picked up the rucksack and became a solo traveler across the world to document and share stories and make the world more inclusive. Along with this, her other work includes an award-winning menstrual healthcare startup in Pakistan and a board game company in Sweden.
