ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hi, I'm Sam Nabil, founder of Naya Clinics
A fun fact about me, I was born in Sendai, Japan. I spent the first three years of my life in Japan before I moved with my family to Cairo, Egypt. I grew up in a quaint and quiet Cairo suburb where I walked to my nearby school and enjoyed my 30 minutes bicycle ride to my sports club.
I spent the better part of my summers on various sports teams. I did well at school, but my favorite part of the school day was always the hour or so a day where we played soccer.
