A lot of people ask how can engineers do creative things because following rules and adding one to one don’t exactly fall under the artistic criteria. However, in my life, I’ve met people who succeeded as engineers and as artists as well. Take Rana Ashour for example. RA graduated from AUS as a Civil Engineer with honors. Then she got a job as a structural engineer. Still left-side-of-the-brain related, right?
The academic system never allowed RA to explore the artistic side of herself since in school she never did any art work or anything. But come one time less than a year after graduation, and RA hit rock bottom for many personal reasons.So you can imagine how that felt; too much negative energy stored. Then one day while watching her sister draw portraits for her university project, she talked to her and decided to open a mini/home business on facebook. The project began as Ashour Gifts where she turned the negative energy into positive energy.
Since then the project’s been growing. A lot of friends and family members helped raise this project to where it has become now including Jihad Mnasria. The name has changed to Hadayaz and RA has made appearances in AUS alumni dinner and global day. What I personally like about Hadayaz is how simple and unique the ideas are. There’s “Butterfliez” an eye-catching tree full of memories. Also under the title “Milk-a-holicz,” a personalized baby book is created. Who would have thought of making a baby book for a baby?

That’s my review for today.
