I have a bachelor degree in Architect and Urban Planning from the University of Umm-Dorman in Sudan. After a 6 years dedication to work and family, I decided to enhance my knowledge with study so I had my Master degree in Business administration and specialized in Marketing. Then I pursuit some professional certificates such as PMP, Green Project Management (GPM-b) and LEED Green Associate. And now I am honored to join IGLUS family as a student.
My professional life was filled with extensive hands-on experience in different fields. I started my career as an Architect in small Engineering Consultant firms for about 3 years where I was responsible not only for the architectural designs but also the work coordination so we can always be on time as the client expectations, handle documentation (contracts, bills, finance…etc.) plus site works and supervision. In 2007 I started working with Ras Al Khaimah Municipality in Town Planning and Survey Administration as an Engineer. For about 4 years I worked extensively in all sections of my administration which gave me huge experience in work details and business process. Based on my experience and knowledge I was assigned as a Project Manager for implementing the first ERP system for a government Entity in RAK which was proposed in my administration and it was turning point. After that I was assigned the second upgrade to our system what included integration of GIS application and SAP, which I got 2 awards for the design of the GIS application (Excellence in GIS Implementation (EGI 2014) from GISTEC, Dubai, UAE & Special Achievement in GIS (SAG 2014) from ESRI, San Diego, USA).
Add to the above my extensive experience as Head of Urban Planning Section which was mainly about Formulating, administering, planning and promoting plans and policies of local government impacting land use, zoning, public utilities, community facilities, housing, and transportation. Plus managing and facilitating the cooperation with other private and public entities.
Areas of interests
In the professional level, I love adventure and new experiences. I am passionate about learning new skills and knowledge exchange. I also like group work where you can explore the essence of other people’s life and experience. And I am always open for volunteer opportunities that are related to project management, strategic planning, research, communication, and marketing.
In my free time I love swimming and scuba diving, handicrafts especially crochet and trinkets, reading books related to self- development, and psychology.
