Ahmad is based in Dubai in the UAE and worked with students in the area of welfare and educational consulting before joining Crimson.

Ahmad graduated from the University of Michigan with a BA in International Studies and a BSE Minor in Computer Science. While at Michigan, he joined various student organisations and discovered his passion for community and student engagement. Being able to speak Arabic, he became involved in providing opportunities to local refugee students who were preparing for university and he aided in expanding their well-being support. He joined an international non-profit that focused on providing new innovative educational means to underprivileged students in Turkey and Syria. Ahmad is currently pursuing a Master of Social Work degree at the University of Edinburgh, with expected completion in 2023. 

Ahmad loves football, in particular, FC Barcelona and Leo Messi. Ahmad might not be the best football player, but he spends his time daydreaming about being back on the pitch. In his free time, Ahmad enjoys drinking tea with his mates or spending time with his family. Ahmad has a passion for the Arabic language and is trying his best to bury his head into as many Arabic books as possible!
