ABOUT THIS WEBSITE
Join me in developing a new vision for Lebanon. For it is upon our generation, the Lebanese youth, to forge our own future.
If you believe in the promise of Lebanon, let us work together. If you dream of a Lebanon where you can fulfill your potential, let us join forces. And if you aspire towards a Lebanon that can retain its youth and talent, let us make ourselves heard.
Together, and only together, can we achieve those goals we all completely share.
While some people are cynical of change and disillusioned, I believe the moment is ripe for positive change. Because since the founding of modern Lebanon there has not been a brighter, better educated, and more highly motivated generation than ours. Our generation has a unique mix of idealistic-realism and a devotion to country matched in few nations and excelled in none.
It will not be easy but it is upon us to improve, not abandon Lebanon.
I invite you to contact me with practical ideas to improve our daily lives and solve our most challenging public problems. I am hoping that through this website we will debate, collaborate, and develop effective policies to build the Lebanon of our dreams.
I look forward to working with you.
