Writer, Content Curator + Projects Person

About Me

Yosr is a writer, content curator and program manager that loves the challenge of taking a program and breaking it down into tiny manageable streams. She has eight years of experience as an architect and project manager in the UAE’s construction industry, focusing on retail and educational sectors. 

In parallel, Yosr founded wrichitects, an educational platform that provides creative writing workshops to encourage storytelling in the region. With the belief that architecture and storytelling are correlated, wrichitects was initially created to help architects and designers write about their projects from a creative storytelling point of view and fall in love with the art of writing.
