She is Norwegian, but has an arabic background, so it is not by coincidence that she chose to start her business in this part of the world. Her desire to teach and spread knowledge, coupled with a keen interest for user interface design and technology, led her to develop the worlds first gamified educational app covering highschool material.

About the Nordic Sundowner
The Nordic Sundowner is an arrangement between the Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Finnish business councils in Dubai where we take turns in arranging a monthly event, inviting all members of all councils to attend. The hosting council sets the venue, and makes arrangements for a key note speaker for the event. This time it was the Norwegians turn, and the next Nordic Sundowner will be arranged by the Finnish Business Council on the 25th of may.
