The brief introduction of myself
My story is pretty complicated comparing with every other kid from my generation. I was born in East Africa, originated from Asia - Middle East and grew up in Europe – London.
Confused?? Well, it is not my fault, but I consider this combination a perfect destiny as it actually made me a multi-cultural person with multiple language skills.
I started my career journey with IT even though I initially had no idea what IT was all about. However, after sleepless nights of studying, I finally graduated with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and then found a job opportunity in Dubai. I couldn’t resist and decided to grab it!!
While working in Dubai and running a family life, I managed to graduate with a Masters Degree and obtained some major certifications related to IT and management.
Throughout the years, I've worked for organizations that feel the need to constantly burnout their employees with atrocious requests and absurd timelines. Having been put through some bad experiences in my past, I've also had some great ones that allowed me to work with some wonderful people who have played key roles in my career. I honestly find the challenges that I deal with on a day-to-day basis meaningful and rewarding.
I have worked very hard to get where I am today, but I'm very passionate about where my career is leading me to. I love and enjoy what I do and I will do whatever it takes to keep developing my career further.
Reward comes only after hard work!!!
