A Star Among Us: Labib El Choufani
Labib El Choufani, a social media entrepreneur whose business world revolves around the Web 2.0, in other words, a Ninja whose powers include delivering messages in less than 140 characters among others.
My name is Labib El Choufani, born and raised in Doha. I did my BA at LAU in "Communication Arts: Radio,TV & Film" then got my Master's degree in "Production Design" at Kingston University, London. Once back from London, I started my social media and PR agency BoboLink. In December 2012, I finished my "Digital marketing" diploma in Dublin where I'm certified to work and teach within the European Union.
What inspired you to be the person you are today?
All the failures I've been through, which were A LOT.
