I was chosen by the Department of State of the US to represent Egypt as a leader in disability sport, I went to Clemson University to join the Global Sports Mentorship Program to join a think-tank to start Blind Football in the USA and as a guest lecturer in many different Sports classes. After having to shut down Blind Football, I co-founded “Find Me Football” with a friend from School and am its acting CEO. “Find Me Football” is an application that helps anyone who wants to play football, find others across Egypt to play with and match in real life games. We were voted joint 2nd best application in Africa by the African Application Luanchpad and were honored by the Egyptian President for our work.

It was an extremely challenging path to walk. The payments realm is dominated by men globally. And women who raised to the top of it are quite a few and never recognized. It felt like walking in the shoes of giants. And still does.
