I am a social columnist, a motivational speaker and a youth coach. Aside from drawing attention to local issues, I host youth development and career planning sessions across the UAE.
Getting an MBA from Stanford was a huge personal achievement. I’m now supporting high school students begin to realize their dreams by arranging internships and placements at organizations across the UAE.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to speak at events or host workshops. Whether I can impact a 200 person-filled hall or have a one-on-one session with a student trying to figure things out, it’s an achievement.
Training at Cobra Fitness in Bandar is a regular routine. You can work-out in a great atmosphere with awesome coaches; it allows me to burn off steam, and fat.
Make time to catch up with friends and mentors. I try to assign at least one night a week for dinner and a meet-up so I can stay in touch and updated with their news, business, health and everything in between.
Don’t get too comfortable in a certain career or role. Once you get comfortable your personal growth starts to slow down, but the world around you keeps moving, and most of the time and a constantly faster pace.
I plan on pushing myself in 2015; I want to teach at a UAE University, take my workshops UAE-and Gulf-wide and finish my book.

A simple blog that shows you how to make life better.

An Emirati I admire who keeps me informed about what’s going on in the world.
Our Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed has used social media to deepen the connection between leadership and the people. I enjoy hearing his thoughts on local and international issues.
