Commended by the Chairman of the Choueiri Group, Mr. Pierre Choueiri, as being part of his “dream team”, she was selected to represent DMS at several international events as a keynote speaker, panelist and moderator.
Additionally, as an accomplished artist, Leena leveraged her entrepreneurial mindset to set up this unique online marketplace, Artezaar.com, for artists and art lovers in the UAE and beyond. She wanted to give every artist, like herself, a place they could call home. An idea initially springing from her dad, Leena works tirelessly to build and grow the website, and to ensure that each day, the artists of Artezaar.com grow. She was chosen by TEDx to speak about her soul journey that led to the creation of Artezaar.com
"I shaped my future by practicing a philosophy that kept me grounded; a personal mantra that takes an individual back to the basics.", says Leena. "It is a universal mentality that enables individuals to engineer themselves into driven, passionate people able to grow and evolve to practice their soul calling."
