VCUQatar is the Qatar campus of the prestigious Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Richmond, Virginia. I worked in VCUQatar’s Communications department managing PR and media relations for close to six years creating content for all university marketing collateral, publications, websites, annual reports, reports for Her Highness’ Office, the Joint Advisory Board as well as the President’s (VCU) Office. I handled print, online and broadcast media, showcasing the university in Qatar, the region and abroad. I also represented the university on various committees in-house, at Qatar Foundation as well as the State of Qatar. Besides this I also advised the university on cultural sensitivity and connected the various departments with partners, sponsors and collaborators. All of this I did while working at the university and after as consultant.
