The cookie: '' is not set. Farah Ubaid – Affreej

Farah Ubaid

Founder, CEO, IT Trainer

I am always debating with my inner self as to how I should introduce myself! By my profession, being a Software Engineer, or as a Teacher which is my passion. I can also call myself a proud and, well, to be honest tired mom of a foursome team who keep me on my toes but are also a source of so much delight and pride to me. I love to spend time with my kids doing creative activities. I believe that kids need polishing. and interacting with them in innovative ways brings out the best of their personalities. This love of grooming my children took a good 16 years to develop my intentions to earn a master’s degree in Education. Now that I am aware of it, I am determined to make it happen.

I am a Pakistani national, currently residing in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I have a 4 year Bachelor degree in software engineering under the belt, acquired from FAST National University of Emerging Sciences. I have been teaching the subject of Information Technology and Computer Science at different levels. Some of my pursuits that give a brief insight into my teaching experience are:

  • Teaching programming language Java and .NET to post graduate students as an IT Trainer at Mahara Program (Joint Venture of Aramco and Wipro)
  • Teaching Computer Science and ICT to IGCSE and A Level Students in school and as a private tutor.
  • Teaching Graphic Designing, Video Editing, Web Designing and Digital Marketing to students of all ages.

I have been an ardent supporter of developing IT skills in our youth and have always strived to make it possible by spreading the knowledge and computer skills. I believe that learning never stops. You learn as you teach.

The love of teaching individuals provoked me to start a business called Affreej Elearning LLC established in US in the year 2021. The platform specializes in providing Computer, STEM and English courses. We, at Affreej, aim to provide a platform for the kids to help them to hone their talents and use it to refine their personalities.

Before Covid, I had established a club that ran for 4 years under the banner, Elite Club Jeddah, which was a social platform for ladies and kids. We specialized in arranging educational and creative events for kids paired with entertainment. I strongly believe in women empowerment too. It is imperative for the women in our society to showcase and polish their talents and capabilities. This is the reason that I humbly try my best to generalize the notion of women empowerment in our community as well.
