Taqaddam is a skill enhancing program that enable students all around UAE to learn soft skills and build character strengths. It is originally an Arabic word but it translates to 'moving forward' which the program is all about. I was able to be a part of it and develop such strengths. Though self development is a major purpose of the program, it was also important to be a critical thinker as I had to solve any problem that my team and I felt that people faced whether here in the UAE or globally. We prototyped an app called 'ConMaps' which enables businessmen and women all over the world to easily find their conference halls in huge buildings, hence eliminating the need for paper maps which would implement sustainability.
