How has Covid-19 changed your job?

Besides the obvious, working from home, the importance of PR for corporate brands has grown massively over the past year. All brands are adapting to their PR strategy to remain relevant to the current environment, with a focus on being proactive rather than reactive. Meaning, PR professionals like myself get a bit more creative at their role.

Side hustle

When I am not working on PRCA NextGen Arabia, I spend time painting and communicating my thoughts through colours. I also enjoy watching movies, series, and Originals productions on my favourite platform, OSN Streaming!
