I am originally Egyptian and came to Loughborough in 2015. Now I am an MBA graduate running my start-up supplying unique upholstery and soft furnishing fabrics to interior design businesses.

It's my second year running the business, and however how many challenges I have faced, I still feel this is what I am supposed to do. Coming to Loughborough paved my way to positive transformation. I gained more confidence being in such a diverse community, I learnt to accept and understand different perspectives and received a high-quality education with support on my start-up journey from my supervisors in the School of Business and Economics.

International Women’s Day is a day of appreciation for every woman in the world, recognising their efforts and motivating them to keep going on their journeys with all the support needed.
