Testimonials

Wafaa introduced us to new initiatives and guided us with her passion.

“We are a private enterprise that specializes in organizing events and developing platforms dedicated to food, hospitality and tourism. For the last fourteen years, we have been working to support small social enterprises in rural areas- mostly led by women and youth- to connect them to the hospitality, travel, and tourism industry supply chain. This was largely made possible by Wafaa who introduced us to new initiatives and guided us with her passion and professionalism.”

Wafaa’s mentorship allowed me to discover my forte and to cater to a very specific niche.

While I was starting up my micro enterprise of Phoenix Rising Studio’s Wafaa has given me ample guidance on branding through the development of a unique market position. But first, she provided insightful and accurate guidance in ideation and product development of my photography experiential packages. Lately, I had the chance to attend to a workshop session that Wafaa has organized in Costa Rica. It was an amazing experience to see Wafaa thriving in a new environment where she seemed well established and amiable by the participants who trusted her vision and admired her persistent work to empower them. Wafaa’s mentorship allowed me to discover my forte and to cater to a very specific niche.
