After her education in Telecommunications engineering and Master of advanced studies on visualization and graphics communication in Department of computer science and Information systems at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and University Of Geneva, in Switzerland, she might have become an engineer! But her deep attraction for art lead her to express herself through the Carpets, Paintings, jewel and precious stones creation.
