By establishing TLE in the State of Qatar, we positively contribute to the country’s National Development Strategy. Education and training offer multiple benefits to our society and contribute to human development which results in a higher positive social impact in our beloved country.’

As adults, many of us have ‘learned’ to limit our capacity for success and fulfillment for a variety of reasons. My vision is to encourage the youth to continue exploring and enhancing their creativity because they have an extraordinary ability to access their imagination and innovate. The Little Engineer is just one of many alternatives which has the capacity to encourage them to utilise their inventive and logical sides, both of which are keys to successful thinking and creation.’

She wants to provide younger generation with the opportunity to tap into their logical and creative senses and qualities, which she and many learning experts believe is one of the most powerful ways to learn and create great things which we can be truly passionate about.
