Ayoub Omri

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself.
I’m Ayoub Omri, 28 years old, from “La Marsa” in the suburbs of Tunis, Tunisia. My interests are diverse, ranging from a profound love for history to a passion for basketball. I am an avid listener of history podcasts, delving into topics from the Punic Wars to Hellenic odysseys. Even at night, I often find myself falling asleep to a documentary about the Bronze Age or the Carthaginian civilization. While I used to play basketball for my hometown club for a decade, including a year in the senior team, I had to pause my professional basketball journey due to academic pursuits. Nevertheless, I still engage in the sport once a week with a group of friends.

Who or what do you most admire?
I hold kindness as a paramount human trait. Additionally, I deeply admire Carthaginian general Hannibal Barca, who famously declared, “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam” translating to “I will either find a way or make one.” This resilient mindset resonates deeply within my own life philosophy.

Name three things on your bucket list.

  • Visiting both Australia and Scotland

  • Explore all of the Egyptian historical sites

What’s the best thing about your job?
The most rewarding aspect of my work is the opportunity to continually immerse myself in new subjects, acquire knowledge, and engage in diverse tasks each day.

Who’s the most inspiring person you’ve ever met?
I had the honor of meeting James Clear, the author of ‘Atomic Habits’, at a conference hosted by my former company, ADP. His remarkable and inspiring discourse on transforming one’s life and striving for constant self-improvement left a lasting impact on me.

What’s the best holiday you’ve ever had?
Undoubtedly, my best holiday was in London, which further solidified my desire to eventually reside there. During this trip, I walked an average of 30 kilometers per day for five consecutive days, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the discovery of the city’s rich offerings.
