Biography

Manel has a degree in Information Technology from Campus El Manar University.

She began her professional experience at SagemCom for 6 months and at start-up IRIS for 2 months as a trainee. This allowed her to gain experience and to develop communication and team-working skills. It helped her improve her technical skills, as well.

IT developers are often considered geeks who think in a binary manner, but Manel loves social contact and is still addicted to reading books. Life was not that kind to her; she has faced difficulties and dealt with sickness, loss and struggle. That makes her the better person she is today. She would not do anything without her mother’s help. Manel’s mother is her inspiration.

During the Lazord Fellowship Program, she was a program assistant at NGO Kawakibi for Democracy Center. She felt honored to be a part of their team.
