Dalia Lofty, Chair
Farah Sabih, Secretary
As a professionally trained architect with a Master's in Psychology, I've spent more than a decade designing public spaces, including hospitals and school campuses. Today, I continue my journey as an independent researcher exploring the critical impact of spaces on human psychology.
Both of my children, Nil and Cem, are in Primary at Doha College.
Since relocating to Qatar in 2019 from my hometown Istanbul, I've grown to appreciate the unique opportunity we have to experience and understand so many different cultures in this region. With this being my first international living experience after many years in the same city, I understand the challenges that come with adapting to a new life.
I believe wholeheartedly in the pivotal role the school-parent union plays in helping children and families acclimate to a country different from their own. This belief reinforces the critical role that FDC plays in the Doha College community.
Join me as we work together to further foster the welcoming and supportive environment at Doha College. Together, we can ensure our school remains a nurturing space that cherishes the diversity of its community.
