Women Fitness President talks to the Jordanian Senator about her dreams, fitness & lots more!
Driven by your passion, mission and love for giving, you are a Jordanian Senator and the General Director of the Ahliyyah School for Girls and the Bishop’s School for Boys in Amman. Walk us through your incredible professional journey so far.
Haifa Hajjar Najjar:
The passion to be in service of others and make a difference in people’s lives began at my home, inspired by my mother and culture. Professionally, I began my journey as head of the KG at the Ahliyyah School for Girls. It was there that I realized the extent to which adopting a learner’s mind-set is the strongest ingredient for growth: personal and collective. This lesson is my major driving force so far: healthy growth is mutual growth of an individual within their community, where giving and taking is their everyday bread. Moving on to becoming Superintendent of Ahliyyah, then Superintendent of the Ahliyyah, the Bishop, and the Ahliyyah and Bishop KG, every day is born with new lessons to learn, the utmost being to love life and generously give it your whole self. My biggest pleasure is in serving my country through the positions I assume and not in the positions themselves.
Introduce us to a day in your multi-dimensional life.
Haifa Hajjar Najjar:
It seems any given day begins but never ends. A day in my life begins with morning coffee with the family, physical exercise at the gym, tending to our schools and fulfilling any other items on my daily agenda. I also make time for socializing, reading, and contemplating on my day.
