Love it or hate it, we all spend hours upon hours consuming content on the social media, hoping to learn something new, or maybe just even pass the time.
With so much content out there, it becomes near impossible to come across quality-oriented programming that makes us think of issues on a more deeper, philosophical and even personal level.
If you are looking for an online program that features something different yet meaningful, then you should check out The “S” Stories, a YouTube video series hosted by the popular Sophiya Anjam AKA RJ Sophie.
About Sophiya Anjam

At just 22 years of age after getting her training in media production from Dubai, she joined the radio bandwagon with her morning show called ‘Head Over Heels’, which gained momentum over the years.
She got introduced to this field spontaneously, after a friend of hers working at FM91 asked her to audition & since then, there was no turning back for her.

The S Stories
Sophiya, from the very beginning of her career in the media, always wanted to incorporate humanitarian, environmental and spiritual issues, which inculcate essential components of a dynamic & prosperous society.
She saw how there was a lack of content and awareness in our society regarding issues that matter, while sadly the focus was always on sensationalizing news, copy pasting and lifestyle-based blogging, more so, without any research or aim.
People should be inspired by content, not just see the same story on every online channel like a photocopy.
“Keeping the Spirit Alive” as the show’s tagline says, the “S” Stories, is currently showcasing issues that one usually faces in Ramazan, things we tend to ponder upon, get confused and how we can overcome them. She hosts Maulana Jahangir Mahmood for 2 special episodes and together they discuss how one can make the most out of the Holy month.
The “S” Stories has currently aired 15 episodes so far. Every episode has a different story and have highlighted different topics e.g. Mental Health Awareness, Importance of Ramazan, Environmental Protection, Travel, Entertainment, Social Work and the likes.
