Ali Hilly, MBA - Marketing Manager at AMBRO

Ali might seem like a very strange person at the first glance but when you dive deep inside of his personality you can see devotion. his eagerness to participate and be a part of any project is wonderful in a world (of Iraqi) that lacks the initiative to join a team. he is a team player and a workaholic . you might not see him on the stage but you always know he is in the back scene of the play.

Marwan Jabbar - Education Advisor @ EducationUSA

Ali is the person you want to hire if you are looking for a creative, problem solving employee. He comes with a mindset that is based on innovation and commitment to the tasks he is assigned to. For a person at this young age, he already has such an interesting experience as a volunteer and social entrepreneur, without forgetting his outstanding programming skills and wide knowledge of coding. Ali is the type of person who likes to constantly follow-up all the updates in the tech world and very keen on maintaining an up-to-date information-relevant to his interest-by reading books and blogs; which is a trait that is very rare to find. Brilliance is dominant in Ali's planning, actions, and reactions; but, in the same time, I find myself obliged to mention that Ali interpersonal skills might be directed upfront as the full time job environment is different from the volunteerism world.
