I’m an Emarati human who is a 3rd culture kid. I Lived in four different countries and been to 10 different schools throughout my life. The past few years, I lived through a transformative experience where I moved from being a coding geek, onto a human geek.

I started my career as a IT network and security engineer with a bachelor degree in computer science. After 15 years of seeking what my passion and purpose is, I was appointed for a job that fulfils just that.

Today, I’m a Chief Happiness & Wellbeing Officer at the Prime Minister’s Office in UAE. My passion is helping those around me to become better versions of themselves. In my journey, I worked on changing and introducing policies in my organization to better serve employees and their families. I’ve also established a full coaching program targeting young recruits. Most recently, and as part of the 2020 pandemic crisis plan, I’m leading a national Mental Health Support Line, a free 800 number for the public by those who may be suffering due to COVID19.

I feel so blessed I found my true calling in life. I am making it my mission to help others find theirs.
