Share resources, work smartly and efficiently, eliminate waste and help one another. These are the values that drive Rudayna on a personal and professional level. She is now taking a side-step from her career in urban planning to pour her energy into the creation of Thaki. Rudayna’s involvement in promoting educational opportunities goes back many years: She has been a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Educational Counsellor since graduating from MIT and was the driving force behind the establishment of 2 endowed scholarship funds at both MIT and the American University of Beirut (AUB).
Rudayna has a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies from MIT, a master’s degree in Urban Planning from McGill University, and is a graduate of Amsterdam’s THNK School of Creative Leadership, an executive program promoting transformational thinking, innovation leadership, and venture design to build human-centered systems for a better future.
