Meet my soul sister and host in Jordan, also opening up her home to me while I’m in Amman. Malak Al Akiely is a Young Global Leader of World Economic Forum, and a self made entrepreneur in commodity trading since the age of 21.
She is the first female Board member on Jordan Economic Forum, and the sole young female owner of commodity import in the MENA region, with over ten years of experience in agricultural commodities trading with focus on food security. Her company Golden Kayan is the exclusive representative for several energy companies in Jordan, across Oil, Energy & Renewable Energy. She is also Adviser and MENA development Manager for Swiss Co. Cerealia Co.
If you thought that was impressive, watch this video, as she was last year awarded one of the top ten young persons of the world by Junior Chamber International (JCI), business category.
