brave speaker on board

Challenging the status quo.
I was born in a patriarchal society in the heart of the Middle East where a woman must be constantly dependent of either her parents or her husband, where women are getting ignored because of the overwhelming gender inequality, be it by fellow teammates or a conventional employee of a governmental organisation.

I have done my best to live an independent life. I started to work at the age 17, ran a company for two years, and currently work in advertising, mostly comprising of men, both modern and traditional.

My story is the journey of becoming autonomous.


At the Brave World, I will talk about what it means to enjoy the miserable moments of life instead of running away from them.
