Aug 27, 2021 Season 2 Episode 1
Mastercard Foundation Scholars at the university of Edinburgh


“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” This simple truism is the mantra that has guided most of the choices that Nour Al Halabi has made in her journey of sustainable and impactful leadership 

Currently pursuing an MSc in Anthropology at the American University of Beirut under the Mastercard  Foundation Scholarship, Nour strongly believes in the power of storytelling as a gateway for effecting change in the local Lebanese communities.  

 Tune in to listen to her recount her work with Nakhnu (an NGO that seeks to promote the Lebanese artwork) and how, armed with a degree in Television studies from AUB, she is continuously working towards normalising art as a viable career path for all and sundry.
