MY STORY

At university, I studied and graduated with BA (Hons) Sports Management and went on to do an MA in International Marketing Management.

Here was the idea – I wanted to combine these two to work in the sports marketing industry. And offline too.

How times have changed?!

Originally, along the way when I worked through various jobs, I gradually leaned toward SEO and anything related to that. From working at a digital marketing agency to being in-house, from working at a small local homeware company to an international fashion brand…I’ve covered a lot of areas.

And that gave me amazing insights of various industries as well as access to very smart people around me.During that time, I mix it up by also being involved with the WordPress community and speaking at events to share my knowledge about WordPress SEO.

But something nagged at me towards the latter years of my full-time employment. On the side, I have always enjoyed helping other people to manage their sites but still continued to work full-time.

By doing this I was able to further develop my WordPress skills…which allowed me to start my own business, in July 2016. I help entrepreneurs and small businesses with WordPress sites to grow their online visibility, increase their audience engagement and encourage conversions.

After working as a WordPress SEO freelance consultant, I have decided to go back to full-time employment. This happened amidst a global pandemic, where everything was happening virtually, whether it's working from home or organising events.

So I have decided to work as a Marketing Manager for an event organising planning software called HeySummit and it isa sector which is growing event though virtual events of some kind have existed for many years up to 2020.

That said, I couldn't neglect my deaf advocacy work, which is what I also do on the side.

I started Hear Me Out! [CC] originally as an outlet about my deafness, how it impacts my life and what other people can learn from me, be it if you are hearing or a deaf person.

Gradually over time, the website and YouTube channel has grown quite steadily and even though it has taken a backburner due to moving to full-time employment, I am passionate about using the power of the internet to share knowledge and help improve other people's lives.

My other interests

Personal Development

There's no end to how much we can learn and grown. Personal development is a huge part of my life, whether it's for personal or professional reasons.

PRODUCTIVITY

I used to be overly obsessed with managing every single minute of my time. But being productive is not necessary making every single count.

Health & Fitness

You can't be the best version of yourself without looking after your health. Even though it's good for your health, I enjoy playing football, golf, HIIT and yoga.

Food & Cooking

As a passionate foodie, I spend a lot of time learning about food and cooking, whether it's new recipes or learning about the food culture of a specific country

Languages

As a multi-linguist, I've dabbled with Arabic and Spanish in the past, but currently focusing on British Sign Language to overcome barriers for myself and others.

Stoicism

I have been really interested in learning about the ancient art of Stoicism, which can apply in the modern world to help overcome challenges and worries.

poetry

As a proud multli-linguist, I've dabbled with Arabic and Spanish, but currently focusing on British Sign Language.

video games & Acoustic guitar

If it's not to read or spend time with my family and friends, I enjoy relaxing with either my Playstation or my acoustic guitar.
