Can you tell us about your education?
I studied English literature and languages. My family actually chose that for me as I originally wanted to study media, but they didn’t let me.
From Languages and Literature to Media, how did you make this transition?
In fact, it was not a transition, it was a postponement. I always wanted to study and work in the media. My family wanted me to study literature and I wanted to study media, so I finished literature then I studied media. That was a realization I had to accomplish anything I had previously postponed … I decided to follow my passion. I used to work during the day and study in the evening for four whole years and then I actually started to work as a correspondent for a number of TV channels in the UAE.
