Creator & Director
Don't Hate, Educate!
In response to the critical cultural clash of the Danish cartoons crisis in 2006, I've created a volunteer initiative under the slogan "Don't Hate, Educate" www.Zero-net.net aiming to encourage better cross-cultural understanding. Zero-net is now an award-winning project with supporters all over the world.
I've turned my unique experience on Zero-net into a series of creative workshops to inspire youth around the world on effective cross-cultural communication, conflict resolution, diversity and sensitivity in addition to my signature workshops: Success on Zero-Budget, Social Entrepreneurship and Global Citizenship. The workshops were delivered in both Arabic & English in private and public educational institutes and NGOs, as well as for multicultural audiences locally and internationally in person and remotely via video conferencing and on Second Life.
In spring 2010, I was invited to an informal family lunch with the Danish Royal Family during their visit to Cairo and was commended on my efforts on cross-cultural communication.
