Aneesa is Princess Jasmine's Lady-in-Waiting who appears in the direct-to-video film Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams.
She assists Jasmine in her daily activities. Aneesa is first seen helping prepare a bath for Jasmine. Jasmine is seen speaking to her about her stressful day teaching at the Royal Academy, having to deal with the unruly pupils, and her want to quit.
Aneesa offers her the advice of treating the children how she treated Jasmine when she was a young girl, and to never give up. Jasmine goes on to ask if she was really that bad. Aneesa goes on to light-heartedly confirm that she was an "absolute nightmare." Shen then tucks Jasmine into bed.
When Sahara goes missing Jasmine asks for Aneesa for help to distract the Sultan from going to see Sahara. She is successful and Jasmine returns with Sahara on time.
Given how Jasmine's biological mother passed away when Jasmine was very young, it can be assumed that Aneesa has acted as a motherly figure to Jasmine since her mother passed away.
