Tima Alhaddad, Board Member
Auckland, New Zealand
Born In Iraq and migrated to New Zealand at the age of 10, with her parents and sister. She has been residing in Auckland since then.
Her career started in the corporate world, but she always had dreams of owning her own business. When she noticed a gap in the market, she quickly launched Paper Bloom Girls – an ecommerce business specialising in paper flowers that services New Zealand and Australia. Tima loves giving back and making a difference. She is passionate about unity and believes the best way to achieve it is by creating better understanding, eradicating common misconceptions, and building more tolerance.
In her spare time, Tima volunteers for the community and is currently helping organise a commemoration event at Aotea Square for 15 March.
Her idea of a perfect day is spending it at the beach swimming and body boarding. Tima brought her love for water with her from Iraq, where she says she would spend the whole day at a country club pool.
