I'm seeking to contribute a positive social impact in the Middle East through WASH, micro finance, or relief and development projects with a particular interest in Beirut, Lebanon. I'm willing to work almost anywhere in the Middle East or Africa.
I work well under pressure in challenging situations. I have 8 years of international experience, 6 years in Finance, 10 years in the cultural/anthropology sector, 4 years of field experience, and have worked in the corporate sector, academia, and hardship field conditions. My passion is developing relationships, helping people, conflict resolution, and solving problems. I’ve worked with families, investors, and executives, on collaborative and autonomous projects, and currently volunteer with refugees in addition to my job as a personal financial advisor.
Using Arabic, English and French to collaborate on various multilateral projects developed my skills via different social, economic, and cultural environments. I've represented local, national, and institutional interests to investors, peers, and public interest groups.
