Bartley fellow and an assistant book editor at The Wall Street Journal [4] and also contributed in political commentary for the newspaper, particularly on the subject of Pakistan.[4][5] Her career at the Journal lasted about two and a half years.[6]

In 2011, Sethi returned to Pakistan to pursue an acting career.[7] Her first role was playing Natasha in the ARY Digital serial drama Silvatein.
