Founder of #STRONG, Careers Educator, Coach, Author of Empowerment For Teens & Global Speaker
As an educator, I am invested in ensuring that education is not limited to a textbook or the classroom. I am devoting my career to building and creating initiatives that build career readiness for youth aged 12-22. By creating career education opportunities, I am able to bring all stakeholders together to collaborate and build the career readiness that is required to help a young person strive and thrive for inspiring careers. With youth unemployment rising and creating challenges for countries across the globe, career education should not be limited to a university application at the end of a student's secondary education.
After leaving full-time employment in an institution in the UAE, I merged my entrepreneurial and educational skills and I continue striving to create new opportunities that will empower my audiences around the world. I work with parents, teenagers, school leaders, educators and professionals to bring the best opportunities for building career education across the UAE.
When I am not building my career empire, I work on my two social projects #STRONG, and the UAE Careers Community. Moreover, it is evident that I use my various professional tools from coaching to teaching and everything in between to empower young people and the community. I always strive to empower individuals on both personal & professional platforms. In addition, I contributed to the growth and success of individuals, adolescents, and teams as an Executive Coach, Mentor and Educator since the early days of 2007. However, my journey as a teacher began in 1996. Throughout my experiences, I learned that theory and practice must unite to bring educational experiences that are long-lasting and sustainable for the youth.
I continue to strive for my personal best in all elements of my career and my life whilst remaining genuine and authentic. I am excited to say that I am weeks away from gaining my Masters in Education and a stone's throw away from starting my Ph.D. I believe that one of my greatest strengths is ‘moving things forward’ while demonstrating a commitment to my own professional development, as well as the professional development of my team, students, and clients.
Through my work with teenagers and adults, I believe that I am significantly impacting the capacity to influence and manage change within the global community. I am passionate about securing the best outcomes for the individuals in my care and I am determined to energize and empower the individuals that I work with.
