A little bit about me...
I'm a second year MPP at the Harvard Kennedy School and a Rawabi Fellow. I come from a multidisciplinary background that includes management consulting, financial services, public policy, humanitarian aid, and fashion design. Prior to HKS, I spent two years as a management consultant at PwC in their Abu Dhabi and Jeddah offices. During this two-year period, I worked with governmental entities on issues centered around public safety. I also spent three years auditing banks and other financial institutions at PwC in Qatar as part of their Assurance Practice.
I have always had a passion for public service and started a socially-motivated women's fashion brand specializing in a unique blend of traditional and modern wear for Middle Eastern dresses including Abayas to raise money for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment for Syrian and Palestinian refugees.
I completed my undergraduate degree at McGill University where I majored in accounting. At HKS, I have been involved in a number of extracurricular activities including Co-chairing the Women in Power Conference, Leading the Arab Caucus and Vice-chairing the Student Public Service Collaborative.
