“Women Appreciation Month” with Femi9

These past couple of weeks have been my busiest since I quit my job in October. I’m definitely enjoying being productive, but I’m still learning how to deal with the anxiety that comes with deadlines.

I’ve been exploring filming lately. However, I think people still don’t get what it means to be ‘exploring a field.’ I never called myself a director, even though I’ve worked on a couple of videos. Those I’ve met lately insisted on calling me a director, and I honestly don’t want to call myself that at this point because it’s not a title I’ve earned yet. These couple of weeks, I learned that it is about who you know and what they know about you. I guess those who know me have figured out that I work with different media.

I shot another video for a different cause, which I’ll be sharing with you soon. But for now, I hope you find this inspiring. The speakers in this video are Yara Hejazi, founder of Youth in Depth, and Rania Al-Harith, founder of Benefit Arabia, and yours truly!

Thank you Femi9 and Mr. Said Baaghil for this opportunity! And many thanks to FAD Intl’ staff for taking care of me when I fell on your stairs! 🙂 In a way, that really did make me feel appreciated. I truly love the consistency. An important lesson in marketing that I learned from “Selling the Invisible”STUDY YOUR POINTS OF CONTACT. Femi9 chose FAD for a reason, and now I know why. Their points of contact were excellent, on the phone, during the shoot, and after my fall.

Celebrate ORANGE DAY with Femi9 on April 17th and 18th!
