Dima's story begins as a young girl in Jordan with the dream of an education and a brighter future than her culture was willing to allow.  At each turn, she was faced with the limitations of her conservative homeland and a traditional Middle Eastern family who believed a woman's time was best spent in the home and not the classroom.  She was confronted with dangerous and life-threatening circumstances designed to hold her back, and despite it all, she pushed forward, creating her own destiny. Following her dream has taken her around the world and left her with greater lessons than she would have ever imagined possible.  From moving to the U.S. to earning her degree to climbing the corporate ladder, Dima has a unique perspective on what it takes to not only succeed in the corporate world, but also what is required for aspiring female leaders to shatter the glass ceiling and their own limitations.
