Heba Al Awamleh, 28 Amman


Many young students in Jordan go to university and choose a major without knowing their options, capabilities, or interests, leaving them stressed and dissatisfied with their choice. To help prevent this prevalent problem, Heba founded HashTat, an educational company and the first ‘mini’ university in Jordan that provides its students, ages 7-18, with a comprehensive and practical view of the different fields and professions available to them. In addition, HashTat offers a variety of programs, workshops and training sessions that will help them discover their talents and develop their skills. HashTat also aims to cultivate a healthy respect for all professions and dispels any notion of gendered occupations. To date, HashTat has served over 400 young students looking to secure their professional futures and has plans to expand to encompass public schools and the Gulf region.
