Hi there!
!أهلا وسهلا

It is something of a happy accident that I have three major passions in life, social media, things related to the web, and the Middle East. Combining these three is great fun and has sent me in and out of the region multiple times (Qatar, Syria, Lebanon) via a great Swedish University - Lund University where I was given the priviledge of being educated in a cross-discipline, Middle Eastern Studies, all the way up to Masters level.

Fast-forward a few years and I'm in Stockholm since 2012, working at the Swedish Institute as an Editor with two main tasks: running Sweden's digital diplomacy towards the MENA region in Arabic in addition to running Sweden's official social media. Two tasks that are very fun and extremely challenging. In practice it looks like this and this. Ping me on twitter (in English, Swedish, Finnish, Hungarian, German or Arabic) if you want to get in touch!
