She is also the Co-founder of the MyEGYPT initiative, an online platform that uses curated stories to engage audiences with the exploration of Egypt through original content creation.

In 2017, Kelly transitioned into screenwriting and created a limited social horror series based in San Francisco urban legend. She is currently shopping the pilot. She is also developing a true-crime thriller and a western drama series. She was recently hired to develop a thriller miniseries for the UK market.
