A Trip Home
‘It was a summer trip to Alexandria, Egypt after college Graduation when I realized that anything I work towards has to come back to Egypt. I wanted a career in the arts, but that wasn’t secure. However, I knew whatever I did I wanted to be able to come home many times during the year and give others the opportunities I had growing up.
I actually studied sports medicine in College and I wanted to become a physical therapist for Professional athletes. I ditched it all for the art.
I figured the best way I can share my work was to share insight and resources of what to do and what not to do when it comes to having a brand, financial literacy, and providing resources where most needed. It is not just a brand, I want DAH to be a resourceful and a fun platform for others.
I am very proud to showcase the talent and creations of other designers internationally. I design and feature designers, artists, and manufacturers in several regions of the world as well as empowering women through educational programs."
