I grew up in the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi in United Arab Emirates. After graduating college attaining a degree in business with honors, I landed my first job as a management consultant in a Swiss consultancy firm. I had worked with many foreign affiliates within different industries and that in turn allowed me to hone my client relations skills and gain a global perspective. In addition, I fell in love with the concept of consulting. This motivated me to pursue my MBA at the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, with certificates in Business Consulting and Product Management.
As a child, I paid close attention to what people want and what their thought process is. I knew I wanted to make a career out of this and marketing and brand management is the perfect way to utilize those interests.
I enjoy finding gaps in the market and trying to come up with innovative ideas for products and services and help communicate the message to the targeted audience. For existing products and services, I love to devise new ways of promoting the benefits to help generate revenues.
In my free time, I am a social media enthusiast, blogger and a photographer. I have a passion for marketing and love networking and meeting new people.
What makes me different is that I bring a diverse background from growing up in a multicultural environment which contributes toward eliminating homogeneity in a group. In addition to my experience in management consulting, I am a certified English Language Instructor for business professionals from the University of Cambridge. This helped me step outside my comfort zone as an introvert and push myself to stand in front of a class of adults and teach. I strongly believe that we don’t grow when things are easy, challenges are what makes this life interesting.
