More About Me

I'm passionate about

Presentation skills- i am amazed by people's skills to present their idea in a creative way, this is what made TED my TOP PRIORITY.

An idea worth spreading

What if we live in a world where equality and justice prevail.

Talk to me about

The possibility of change, anywhere, everywhere. Change of career maybe? Change of path? Change...

People don't know that I'm good at


My TED Story

I have a dream! a silly dream may be, but nevertheless it was a dream: to attend TED once (at least) in my lifetime.
We didn't use to have these kinds of events here in Lebanon! I used to spend my time watching videos online and i envied people who have LIVE access to these kinds of conferences.
And then, the dream came true, not once, not twice, but 3 times!

I attended TEDGlobal in 2010, TEDActive in 2012 and 2013 and the brilliant TEDxSummit also in 2012.
That's more than i could have dreamed of in a lifetime.

And TEDxBeirut! 6 TEDxBeirutSalons and 2 TEDxBeirut main events in 2011 and 2012! What a success!!

Not forgetting the intimate WEEKLY TEDxSKE salon that we've been having at our home for more than 4 years now!!

Want to hear more? Want to hear about the 2 TEDxGreenBeirut salons that we did in 2010? :)

That's enough TED & TEDx in my life for now! :)
