Hussain Sajwani – Ensuring Success of Damac Properties through his Business and Leadership Skills

It is a well-known fact that the real estate development in the Middle East has been going on at a massive pace in the past couple of decades. And, all due credit goes to the real estate development firms like Damac Properties, which has helped transform the real estate landscape of the region in ways more than one. Damac Properties is owned and headed by Hussain Sajwani, who is amongst the most successful entrepreneurs in the United Arab Emirates today and is also the third-richest person in the United Arab Emirates as per Forbes.

 

 

Hussain Sajwani comes from a humble family background, but thanks to his hard work, determination, and the will to succeed as an entrepreneur, he continued to struggle until he achieved his dream of making it big. Even till date, Hussain Sajwani continues to work as hard as any other employee at Damac Properties, or even more, to ensure that he can maintain the growth momentum of Damac Properties in the time to come, instead of major competition in the real estate sphere in the country today.

 

 

Hussain Sajwani is a well-learned and highly qualified individual and holds a degree in Industrial engineering and economics from the University of Washington. After completing his graduation, he took a job at Gasco, which is a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Oil Corporation. However, doing a nine to five jobs never interested him much, and it is for this reason he left the job and went on to start a catering service firm by the name of Al Jazeera Services. Under his leadership, Al Jazeera Services grew rapidly and even managed to bag clients like U.S. Military and Bechtel.

Betsy Devos: Education Reform

It is in my opinion that Betsy DeVos is a highly qualified candidate for Secretary of Education for the Trump Administration. I don’t feel that all the negative press she has had to endure is justified or grounded on by any logic. I feel that her approach of more freedom to educational choice is to the benefit of the next generation with the rapid progression of the internet.

Betsy DeVos is a member of the Republican Party and has lengthy background for advocating for new education policies, which includes the school vouchers for private schools. Through the Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation she has donated $139 million collectively over the years since its establishment in 1989. These contributions focus primarily on furthering education, community, arts, leadership and justice for institutions such as: hospitals, health research, art organizations, evangelical missions, Christian schools and conservative, free market think-tanks. I believe these philanthropic actions could be the proper structure the education system may need to bring up the graduation rate and lower the drop-out rate.

DeVos is a member of the Foundation for Excellence in Education which is known for introducing policy changes to the current school system since 2007. Devos has also served for the Alliance for School as well as the Action Institute; she currently heads the All Children Matter political action committee. These organizations aim to “promote a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles.”

I feel that the people of this nation knows that something is wrong with the current school system and they feel that is just the way it is, with Betsy DeVos plans to lessen the control of the State on education of the youth and bring back other means of obtaining education. It seems that the current system just churns out our children for the future potential gains and does not focus on building and shaping children into being individuals or capable of free thought. DeVos has long, arduous road ahead of her if she is to revitalize the school system, we should not be an added obstacle when we haven’t allowed her to perform at her optimal level.

The Inspiring Life of George Soros

What would you do if you had the money that George Soros has? Live large, travel across continents and buying everything you need. This might be on top of your agenda, but George Soros does not do either of this. Since he moved to the United States, it’s approximated that Soros has made contributions of over $12 billion to charitable causes. George Soros understands firsthand how it feels to be needy. He was born in Hungary 85 years ago. During his childhood, he was constantly living under the fear of Nazi persecution. George Soros has some Jewish roots, and he was able to escape the persecution that saw over 500,000 Jews killed. Read more at Politico about George Soros.

George Soros uses his money to fund a lot of things and agendas. Among the organizations he funds are those that fight for freedom of expression, those that fight for justice and equality as well as those that stand to accountable and transparent governments. Above this, George Soros is known to fund minority groups that face oppression from the mainstream society such as sex workers, drug users, and LGBTI people. Soros says that he survived the Holocaust through the help of his father who gave his family fake identities and documents. He defends his father by saying that he helped them survive and also helped other people in the same situation. When things got worse, George Soros moved to the United Kingdom in the year 1947 to find a safe heaven. During his time in the United Kingdom, he attended London School of Economics where he discovered his passion for finance. A few years later, an opportunity popped up and decided to move into the free world. Soros first worked at the Wall Street in the year 1956.

His greatest achievement came when he established his own hedge fund known as the Soros Management. Having made a lot of wealth over the years, he decided to open an organization called the Open Society Foundations that partner with over 100 countries. During his time at the London School of Economics, Soros was influenced by Karl Popper. From his books, he learned the importance of a democratic government, individual rights and freedom of expression. His greatest involvement with politics dates back to 1979 when he funded South African students to fight oppression by the Dutch government. George Soros is the face behind Central European University. He established this institution shortly after the collapse of the Berlin wall with the aim of fostering critical thinking around Europe.

One thing has not changed despite the old age. He remains committed to immigration reforms in the United States. He is also a supporter of the BlackLivesMatter movement. Other things that he cares about include religious tolerance and criminal justice reforms in the free world.
