If one were to ask my friends to describe me, they would describe me as a pleasant, diverse, persistent, active and intelligent person. One of the most distinguishing characteristics that I possess is the diversity and breadth of the skills and experiences that I have obtained. I am a science alumnus with a flair for the arts. I have technical aptitude and management experience. I also have a passion for traveling and understanding different cultures of the world. All these elements have given me a broad outlook, with varying degrees of knowledge in a range of topics. I strongly believe that all these qualities will influence and augment my future career in academia.
In 2001, I have established my own private business, “Eshraqa Training Center”, which provides educational services, training and business consultation. The word Eshraqa in my language means brightening, which reflects my optimism about the future and my positive attitude.
I am also an active member in more than one nonprofit organization. Most recently, I created and was the founding president of the Saudi Club of Greensboro. In Saudi Arabia, I was active in the Friends’ of the Environment Group, which focuses and supports projects to keep the environment clean and safe. Another group was the Districts Centers Group, which focused on reinforcing the relationship between neighbors in each district, where I was responsible for the Research and Development Department. Moreover, I was a member of “Training Committee” in Jeddah Chamber of Commerce & Industry.
I am now completing my PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering and seeking an academic position as a faculty member in Industrial and Systems Engineering and consultant in service design that will utilize my educational, interpersonal, and organizational capabilities.
