Work routinely puts her in positions where she has to improvise, speak extempore and rely on her instincts, all of which are skills acquired from her years in the professional sector. In Maha’s own words “The problem is not that equal opportunities are not provided to women in my Country, the problem is with our mindsets that cannot accept a woman ABLE to do a man’s job, the problem is also with our inability to recognize our skills & talents, as women. Tuning into this very powerful core of our brain is something we are afraid of and more often than not we become victims instead of becoming leaders. I consider myself a living example of equal opportunities provided to both men and women in our country”.
