Nahla Osman received her Bachelors degree in languages in 2006, before pursuing a career in the development field for almost seven years. She held middle-management positions at several international organizations and NGOs and has also worked in the public sector in Egypt. She received her Masters degree in Development Administration and Planning from University College London (UCL) in 2012.

This 2-year program provides 15 young entrepreneurs from 10 governorates with technical training in cultural leadership and developing business plans.
