CAREER SUMMARY
Graduated from LAU with honors in 2014, I have been working in Architecture and Interior Design for over five years in addition to managing projects for ODDD, a leading NGO in social sustainable development.
My experience in both social works and architecture has led me to experience different cultures around the world in terms of design and innovation.

Finished an online degree in sustainable cities with distinction and currently developing a startup with the UNDP on women empowerment, focusing on five of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Started my career in Design in Madrid at TOUZA Arquitectos and worked in between Madrid and Beirut on developing Lebanon's biggest theme park from design to execution. In addition to that, I have been freelancing on various local projects in interiors and architecture.
