In Iraq, Wamidh was a successful IT entrepreneur, opening his own technical support bureau. In 2003, the war erupted, and in 2010, he got the opportunity to come to the US. He met a friend that recommended Upwardly Global and got matched to be an internet technician at one of the largest convention centers. He applied, got the interview, and got the job! Wamidh also helped his convention center turn into a temporary hospital to treat Covid-19 patients. He currently still works at McCormick Place, the convention center, as an infrastructure technology manager.
