Key to her success is her forward-thinking ability, broad knowledge about Africa& its, international trade/political involvement, insights into emerging opportunities and trends/challenges on the continent. She majored in Islamic Studies during her undergraduate, and this was inspired by the Middle Eastern/ North African (MENA) regions’ rich culture as well as their nuanced sociopolitical landscape, which she is knowledgeable about .
