• International Students Day - Celebrating India

    International Students Day - Celebrating India (Flyer 2015) In spring 1015 I had the privilege of working with two amazing librarians from UMKC’s Miller Nichols Library Fu Zhuo and Susan Sanders. Together we organized the first International Students Days in the Library to celebrate the diversity of our students through the participation and the promotion of diverse cultural and entertainment activities one country at a time. For this edition we chose to celebrate our Indian students.

    With the help of the UMKC’s Indian Students Association we put together a rich program to celebrate the diversity and the individuality of India. The program featured guest lectures, entertainment and movie along with Mehndi tattoo, books and DVDs displays and Indian refreshment. On April 17, 2015, over 75 participants gathered at the iX Theater of MNL to celebrate India and the UMKC’s Indian students.

This year we celebrated our international student from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The UMKC hosts a large community of students from Saudi Arabia for whom the library is a great place for studying and learning. We collaborated with the Saudi Students Union to come with an interactive program to showcase and inform Saudi culture and heritage. The program was a great success and a celebration of the diversity of the school and the library.

  • Selwane.com le portail de la ville de Salé

    Selwane.com is a web portal dedicated to my home town Salé. It was launched in 2002 as a platform for news, culture and local events. Soon, it became a source for local and national news by excellence. The most popular section on the website was the coverage of the annual festivals in the country. I succeeded to gather a team to help maintain and feed the portal with exclusive content. By 2007 I launched Selwane.TV the webTV of the city (an award winning website) and amwaj that was dedicated to Bouregreg development project. Selwane.com and its sister websites are still available online as a precious archive.
