“Here is my bio :
I am currently a Master student of Development and Emergency Practice
(CENDEP) at Oxford Brookes University and believe that changes in one
life can lead to a change in the world.  I like to be the voice of the
voiceless and to inspire people through actions and kindness.  I am  a
Chevening scholar for 2019/2020 and a Rebecca Dyknes award holder from
UK embassy in Lebanon. Before starting my Masters at Oxford Brookes
University I worked as protection and community based humanitarian and
development professional with UNHCR, UNRWA and many international NGOs
in Lebanon and Syria. I have been actively involved in humanitarian
and development work with refugees and asylum seekers for the past ten
years including working on topics in relation to sexual and gender
based violence, child protection, prevention and response activities
and  community outreach and mobilization support programs including
advocacy.

​I enjoy delivering sessions and panels about forced displacement,
migration and refugee protection to universities, students and many
other actors. As a Cumberland Lodge Scholar (2019-2020) I am also
undertaking the Emerging International leaders Programme alongside
being a young emerging leader in the Women for Future leaders
Programme.  I am dedicated and passionate about interfaith relations
and refugee protection including humanitarian work, rights advocacy
and campaigning including working with women and youth, and community
development and outreach. I am an avid reader, passionate about food,
and loves learning about new people and travelling. “
