Walk For Syria/Turkey.

Life Traveler, Chai Addict, Gone from Mid-life crisis to Late-life crisis. Still deciding what I want to be when I grow up. Moved from Computer Engineering, to Marketing to being a Community Manager in a Software Company. Worked in a few startups, wrote a few books, but none made me rich or famous.

The amazing people that help make this world spin (of course it’s all in God’s control). It could be a random person I meet, or someone from my intimate circle. I love learning and sharing about life and people and that can come through conversation or a book.

Why did you choose to volunteer with GiveLight Foundation?

I blame sister Dian Alyan. It’s all her fault. If she wasn’t so inspiring and nice, and a good role model, I could be wasting time elsewhere.

How do you help make a difference by doing what you do here?

I don’t know what difference I make. But, what I can say is we all look for meaning in life and I get that through some of the projects I have helped out on, especially “Books of Light.” My most memorable experience has been meeting the orphans of Givelight in Oujda, Morocco.
