  • carin

My name is Carin and I am originally from Cairo City in Egypt. Egypt has one of the longest histories of any country, tracing its heritage along the Nile Delta back to the 6th–4th millennia BCE. I grew up embracing the simplicity of nature, ancient culture and loved music.

I have a Master’s Degree in Accounting & Business Administration. I can speak Arabic, English and French. My previous job was with First Education holding as a Financial Analyst, following which I was promoted to Financial Controller.

I have lived in the UAE for 12 years, out of which 8 years of my career lies in BIS Abu Dhabi.

My team at BIS Abu Dhabi has been very supportive -I feel like I have been working here all my life, and it has become part of my family. I really enjoy my work at the Finance Office and to be part of this amazing community.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending quality time with husband and two boys, going to the beach, watching musical theatre and travelling. I have travelled to many parts of the world and am hoping to continue to do so in the coming years.
