Menna was subjected to fame at young age through her sensational mother, the famous dancer 'Zizi Mustafa'. Making it in as an actress, though, was a dream she had and fought for on her own. Her first film was Al-saher (2001), directed by the late Radwan El-Kashef whom she considered her godfather. Radwan taught Menna more than she could imagine. He shaped the way she perceives cinema and how to undergo the process of characterization, where she becomes one with the character and not merely an actor playing a role.Her first appearance landed her roles in films such as Iw'a Wishak (Watch Out!), Film Hindi (2004), Kallem mama (2003), and The Best of Times (2004). Menna was and continues to be influenced by great directors and screen legends she stars alongside. In I Love Cinema (2004), even though she didn't have a big role, Menna benefited a lot and holds the experience, with director Osama Fawzy, dear to her heart. Her role in Enta omry (2004) was another milestone for her. Khaled Youssef was an inspiring mentor to her.Afterwards, she appeared in El Sayed Abo El Araby Wasal (2005), Ahlam omrena (2005), as well as Downtown Girls (2005).

This film was another phenomenal one that gave her a notable boost in her promising career. She then starred in two remarkable films alongside the witty and gifted actor Ahmed Helmy. These films, Satisfied Like This (2007) and Sorry for the Disturbance (2008), were exceptional and original and they were very well received.
