With a passion for cross cultural marketing she also helped to launch transformational marketing programs that delivered premium value to International customers.

In 2009 she decided to return to learn the intricate details of working for a small family business in a developing country. With this understanding, she is enthusiastic about joining SUDIA and proving that with small amounts of philanthropic capital, and large amounts of business acumen, we can build thriving enterprises that serve and empower vast number of Sudanese citizens.
