Show Notes

Episode #19 of the Diving for Pearls podcast has officially launched!!! In this episode, I sit down with Courtney Brandt, Dubai-based author, food writer, content creator, speaker and feminist, to discuss how dogged perserverance, cultivating a mindset of grit and finding your tribe can make a marked difference in both your  personal and professional life.  The author of fourteen novels, four of which were published in 2020, and the Founder of A to Za’atar, a platform showcasing culinary and hospitality experiences from the UAE and beyond, Courtney inspires excellence and maintains that sustained, consistent effort toward a goal on a daily basis will enable us to adapt well in the face of change and adversity. Courtney’s commitment to the process of getting better without becoming emotionally attached to the results, has allowed her to parlay opportunities and take advantage of serendipity when it occurred. In addition to being a prolific writer, Courtney is a staunch advocate of equity in education, stressing that education be the backbone for nation building.  Courtney upholds that providing a universal quality education for young girls and women in particular, is fundamental to the economic growth and development of all nations and that everyone should be promoting it to the greatest levels.
