As a Sr Director at Microsoft, Naseem is not eligible for the MVP Program. In fact none of the Microsoft employees are eligible. However, he expresses all of the traits of a true MVP. At the time of my interview with Naseem, his organization was in charge of the MVP program.
Naseem and some MVPs from Jordan went into the war-torn Gaza Strip to teach local youngsters coding skills and give them a glimpse of a better future.
Naseem's favorite thing about the MVP program is the idea that you can make a difference beyond yourself. This is a core value that underpins a successful community.
