We have a question for you
2 What is your country best at?
"For every language you know, you gain a new version of yourself"
This quote refers to not only the ability to communicate in different
languages, but also the ability to integrate into, and become a part of,
different cultures. Here at Toluna, most of our colleagues speak French,
so we would like to show you the beauty of this language...
And who knows, maybe you will fall in love with French as well and start
learning a new language.

Get to know us better
Have you ever wondered who the people writing to you on the other side of
your computer are, while participating on Toluna? We would like to introduce
you our team, starting with an Arabic Community Manager - Mustafa and tell
you his story about how a boy from Lebanon became the Community Manager
at Toluna, based in Paris, France.
Hello Mustafa, where are you from?
I am Lebanese, I come from a town called Chekka, which is situated on the
north coast of Lebanon, 45 minutes away by car from Beirut, so as you
imagine I used to spend a lot of time on the beach.
Tell us more about your hometown...
My town is well known for Ras AL Shaqaa, a white and green mountain
touching the Mediterranean Sea and its public and private sand beaches. As
well as for some of the largest cement and paper factories in the eastern
Mediterranean, such as Holcim and Cimenterie Nationale.
When did you move to Paris and what was the reason, why did you
I moved to Paris in September 2016, so almost a year and a half ago.
The main reason was to study a master’s programme in International
marketing. Paris has always been my dream. It’s truly the best experience I
have ever had.
We are glad to hear that :) What do you like most about your job?
What I love the most about my job are my colleagues. Everyone is really nice
and fun. I love to interact with other people, see their opinions and share mine.
That’s why I have chosen to do my internship as a Community Manager at
Toluna. To share my opinion and to influence the world.
Which other Arab countries have you visited?
When I was a child, before the war in Syria, I went to this beautiful country with
my family. I am really sorry about what is happening there right now because
Syria is very nice. I also went to Dubai last year and I must say it was
incredible. If I have the chance to travel again, I would like to visit Egypt and
