She is also pursuing the Oman VAT Diploma qualification but says the field of mergers and acquisitions also holds her interest. On the weekends, she can often be found on some type of outdoor adventure like running, cycling, swimming and aerial sports. To wind down, she reads fiction novels and self-help books. She has volunteered at a local school, helping children with their reading and writing.
