"I joined ISC-Cairo in 1998 and graduated in 2008.
Following my graduation in 2008, I obtained a bachelor's degree in economics from the American University in Cairo (AUC). After graduating from AUC, I worked for the World Bank for two years in finance and private sector development. I obtained my master's degree in emerging economies and inclusive development from King's College London in 2014. I joined the college afterwards and was offered a job, which I still have, as Advisor to the Minister at the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation.
The learning process at ISC-Cairo provides a good balance between a highly structured system and one that provides enough flexibility to train students to be adaptive, which has been extremely useful for me in all my subsequent roles, whether academic or professional. Most importantly, I believe my time at school taught me that hard work is always rewarded, a notion which keeps me pushing harder even during the most trying times."
