I joined UConn in Spring 2021 to complete the Leadership and Public Management Certificate, and I recently got accepted into the Master of Public Policy (MPP) program. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and my Master’s degree in Project Management from Notre Dame University, Lebanon.

Professionally, I worked for three years as a Project Manager in Lebanon in overseeing tenders process, from the pre‐qualification stage to the final bid submission and award of contract. Currently, I am supporting Professor Mohamad Alkadry as a Graduate Assistant in the Department of Public Policy.

In the future, I hope to become an established public policy professional and be able to support businesses by helping them reach their goals through the use of data to gain key business insights.
