1. What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy being able to share my knowledge and experiences with students so we can discuss, reflect, think, and apply them together based on their interests and motivations.

2. What would you like to spend more time doing?
I would like to have more time to travel, visit other countries and destinations, and explore the world, different cultures, and ways of living.

3. What do you feel proudest of?
I’m proudest of the various research projects that I have carried out in the field of tourism and marketing over recent years and of being able to contribute in some way to the sustainable economic, social, and environmental development of organizations and destinations.

4. What value do you appreciate most in people?
I really appreciate motivation, enthusiasm, creativity, curiosity, and dedication.

5. Where’s a place you’d like to visit?
Any place I haven’t visited yet. I encourage people to take the plunge out in the world and discover themselves in a different way, to be bold!

6. What’s a dream you’d like to pursue?
Visit Egypt, write a novel, and much more.

7. What do you have left to learn?
I find something new to learn every day. But I think that’s a good thing, it gives me motivation. I think loving people and all living things is one of the main things pushing me to keep learning more. Oh, and I still need to learn how to assemble IKEA furniture properly, because I just can’t manage them!
