Just stepped into starting my own business in media production, training & consultancy with a big challenge: no financial support & one modest client. I am used to facing challenges having had lots of them. But after 20 years in working in the field of media, and making headlines many times in my region, the Middle East, it is about time to spread my own personal wings in the field. At a time when everyone seems to be keen on giving women's voices a space everywhere, I know very well how hard it is to prove yourself & abilities, to face some ugly wars - just because you are a woman.
I believe in giving opportunities, opening doors & teaching someone how to fish, not fish for him/her.
I dream of doing this through my newly born business. It is for the sake of my 2 daughters when I think of how many opportunities are they going to have, or will there be anyone for them if I am no more here. And for the sake of my 3 aunts who suffered a life time physical disability, with rare opportunities to step outside their own home.
May peace be upon everyone.
