Master's in European Economic Studies - College of Europe(Brugge Campus)
My career started when I first graduated from the Pioneer school of Sfax in 2016 with a baccalaureate in Mathematics. I chose to study in Tunis Business School and pursue a Bachelor degree in Business Administration with Finance as a Major and Business Analytics as a minor. I was forced into the world of Business after dreaming of being a doctor during my whole life. At first I thought It was some kind of curse until I figured out that maybe It was the best deviation that life ever gave me. I became passionate about doing something that really matters, that helps boost the economy and be closer to people’s issues and that is how I fell in love with my field of study.
One thing I blamed myself for when I started college is how I was always so focused on my studies thinking that it is the only thing that will define my future. To fill the gap that I created , I engaged myself in every opportunity I came across since then. I got active in different clubs that taught me the basics of debate ( international institute of debate ) and basics of the united nations, what they tackle and through which committees ( Tunis Business School model united nations ) . Also I participated in every competition I heard of ( Injaz Al Arab, Hack for Democracy, Hult prize ) and that was when I first got to know the Tunisian entrepreneurial ecosystem, how to build your own company, what skills you need and all.
By the time I became a Junior student I already knew much more than others do and I was still eager to know more, so I decided to get involved in part time jobs that help me get closer to startups and entrepreneurship .
I did an internship as a financial manager with a startup in Biatlabs, and then another internship as a Investment manager in Level 1 coworking space and recently I did my senior project with Flat6labs , the biggest accelerator in the Mena region. After that I graduated obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration diploma and then joined the College of Europe in Belgium where I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in European Economic Studies and will be hopefully graduating in 3 months . Also, I tried to not wait for the pandemic to end to start my extra-curricular activities and I applied for a competition with ‘The Autorité de la Concurrence ‘ and was selected for the finals so I will be competiting in Paris this June. When It comes to future plans I am open to new opportunities as always and always happy to learn something and teach something back .
My experience taught me that no matter what luxury I am working in, I won’t be fully satisfied unless I am doing something I am passionate about . The value that I give to people is what motivates me to wake up in the morning and go to work and be creative.
