While studying there, I interned at Vodafone where I led an Enterprise Cloud Storage Project to help reduce data loss issues faced by lot of employees. Before that, I interned at Microsoft where I evangelized Windows 8 apps to Microsoft’s Qatar clientele.
I’m currently running Meddy - a doctor discovery platform in Qatar aimed at helping people in the region make informed health decisions.
