Projects I Like to Brag About...

What’s Always on My Mind: Leen and Hilal (my lovely kids); Nature.

Fun Fact: I have visited the five inhabited continents.

Mantra: Smiling and silence are powerful tools. Smiling will help you solve many problems and silence will make you  a better listener thus avoiding many problems!

People don’t know that…I am fluent in two other languages; one of them is French although I have never visited France. If you know of a project in France, bring it on!
