Sarah is a food scientist, she graduated from the Lebanese International University in 2014 with a B.S in Food Science & Technology.
She's born and raised in Tripoli, the city she truly loves. But loving the city was not enough for her to stay, so she planned to leave her hometown to pursue higher education in Europe. However, Tripoli loved her more than she did, and decided to embrace her after facing the constraints on leaving, and offer her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. She went from being an intern at the laboratory in National flour Mills to taking responsibility and transforming it to a technical center.
She attended many courses in Paris and Uzwil, Switzerland for advancing her milling and laboratory analysis expertise. This enlarged her knowledge and introduced her to the international cereal food industry.
She's now operating and directing the Technical Center at NFM and she's the Food Safety Team Leader of the ISO22000 system within the company as well. Beside her job, she's currently completing her M.S in Food Technology.
Sarah has social experiences as she was a member of the Youth Shadow Municipal Council of El-Mina (a 2011 USAID Project) and a former Rotaract member.
She believes that even being an employee, one can also undertake something new, without being asked to do so, can integrate risk-taking and innovative approaches and behave like an entrepreneur while working within a large organization. This is what constitutes her incentives for continuous improvement.
