Zainab on 100 Humans

Zainab stars as one of three presenters on Netflix’s series 100 Humans, along with Alie Ward and Sammy Obeid.

Each episode, the presenters ask questions about a certain area of human behaviour. For example, the first episode tackles the idea of ‘attractiveness’ and whether there are natural influences such as good dance moves or being funny, that can make someone more attractive.
