Master of Public Administration (MPA)
I am a senior officer in the public sector with people-centric nature and a keen impetus for financial organizational change. My ten years of professional experience in the Ministry of Economy and Trade in Lebanon and my MBA that I earned from France guided me to better comprehend different approaches to preparing public agencies implementing transformational policies and gave me insights on how a manager can influence people’s behavior to reduce their inertia to the change. The financial crisis that has been hitting my country two years ago illustrates clearly that there is an urgent need to implement financial and social reforms to address the current hardships that affected people’s lives in expensive and dramatic ways. I joined recently UGA_SPIA to complete my Master’s degree in Public Administration and policy where I am exploring the broader perspective of public service. In my current graduate assistantship, I am contributing to raising public awareness for Human Trafficking, the most lucrative and destructive business globally. It’s an honor to add to the efforts deployed by CenHTRO, an affiliated organization to UGA, which aims through its robust research to reduce the impact of human trafficking issue on societies.
