Dr. Ahmed wrote her first piece of poetry at the age of 12. She has had the honor of being a guest poet at many local Mushairas including the prestigious annual  Ali Garh Muslim University Alumni 'Sir Syed Day International Mushaira in which she recited alongside poetry-maestros such as Javed Akhter, Peerzada Qasim, Manzer Bhopali, Naseer Turabi and others.
 
Currently, she is working on her first book to be published soon. Other than poetry she is passionate about philanthropy, community service, and painting. She is involved in APPNA (Pakistani physicians alumni network) and HDF (Human Development Foundation - non-profit).
