Travel Stories with Moush
Season: 1
Episode: 1
Duration: 00:24:56

The very first guest of the very first season of Travel Stories is Lama Masri.
Lama is the Director of Sales, UAE at Podeo, the fastest growing media-tech company in the Middle East & North Africa. Lama's career started at the mere age of 19, whereby she ventured on co-founding Avalon Lebanon that led to licensing HBO & Warner Brothers content into TV/Airline/Theatrical distribution in MENA. After that exit, Lama co-founded Stark Agency, a digital branding agency between Morocco, San Francisco, London & Beirut. With all the exposure in Tech, she ended up diving into becoming a full stack web developer which led her to founding the Refugees on Rails Aschaffenburg Chapter in Germany, an NGO catered to educating Refugees how to code. She then took it upon herself to simplify the tech content and decided to open the Young coders, a youth coding academy, in Lebanon which operated in 5 different locations with a mission to teach every child in Lebanon how to code.

Lama has not only travelled across the globe and across the region in a variety of professional roles but she has also accumulated many enriching experiences along the way. In her own words, Lama says that everything that she has experienced and seen in her life has truly shaped her to be the person she is today. She is a fabulous ‘living in the moment’ amazing human who is brimming with the most positive energy and some fascinating travel tales. Listen to her incredible travel stories from Saudi Arabia to the United States to Lebanon and much more – it’s quite an exciting journey.
