Maida Smeir, Kenyon Institute Administrator

On your arrival at the Kenyon Institute, it is likely that you will have the good fortune of being greeted by Maida Smeir.

A spirited daughter of Beit Hanina, Maida is as formidable in her business dealings as she is charming in the hospitality she conveys towards guests.

Maida has a BA from Bethlehem University in Hotel Management and has previously worked for the British Council. Since joining the Kenyon Institute in 2005, Maida has remained a precious figure of stability in the dynamic landscape of an international research centre.

In her limited free time, Maida expertly engages in the art of traditional Palestinian embroidery and on occasion, indulges her fondness for Chinese cuisine.
