Our Story

As a child, Ghalia struggled to communicate and was afraid of speaking. Her teachers often expressed concerns to her parents about her lack of communication skills. Public speaking was incredibly daunting, and it affected every aspect of her life. However, everything changed in seventh grade when she joined the debate club. Seeing her opponents actively engaging with her arguments and the judges thoughtfully providing her feedback made her realize that her words finally mattered! The experience transformed her life and propelled her to become a competitive debater at the provincial and national levels.


Motivated to help other students overcome their communication struggles, Ghalia became a debate coach at her former junior high school. The program expanded very quickly, and soon, the limited resources prevented her from accepting even more aspiring debaters. Finding it disheartening that this life-changing opportunity couldn’t be offered to more students, Ghalia decided to take action. In 2020, TalkMaze was founded with a vision for a world where communication skills training is accessible to every student around the globe. The platform aims to empower young people globally through communication skills training. 

Today, TalkMaze offers virtual public speaking and debate programs, 1:1 coaching, and partners with several schools to provide tools to improve communication skills and boost confidence. Thousands of students across the globe have benefited from TalkMaze’s programs and support. As the founder and CEO of TalkMaze, Ghalia travels around the world to advocate for expanding access to communication skills training, with a mission to continue growing TalkMaze’s reach and bringing communication skills to even more students worldwide.
