Background
Hey, I mentio- ned my name earlier!
In case you wondered what's the meaning of my name
It's an Arabic name which has Persian and and Aramaic origins and it's meaning would make the understandable sense through a linguistic refer- ential context of a state oneself enters when do glorify, worship, remem- ber and surrender whenev- er appropriate to, thus, praise The Lord.
Also, I come from a country which has 5 beautiful flags

Please mind me, I want to tell you more about myself! Hi, I'm Zakaria. I have a sincere passion to see the world and humanity in a better place. In one way, I address global issues from my perspective and share with the world to help people see the reality of the matter, and make with an informed decision or adopt from bad to good policy.

Zakaria is a British and Muslim Computer Scientist, who was born in the United Kingdom. Zakaria studied at the International School of the Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia wherein he has enjoyed his upbringing pursuing the primary and preparatory as well as secondary studies in the southwest suburb of Manchester. Zakaria enjoys attending Hackathons and won prizes in 12 out 45 of which attended whilst travelling up and down the continents.

Zakaria Enjoys volunteering and organising and taking part in widening participation and educational STEM-oriented events, having so far recorded 2400 hours long of mostly voluntary work throughout different projects.

Such endeavours allowed Zakaria to have the chance and see the world and its security, political, economical, religious and digital state from different perspectives and develop his passion further, in particular, around the world religious and digital state. Currently, I work on an interesting project to help humanity move from retrogression to progression.
