Many got to meet you but few know your story and why you’re here. So tell us abit about yourselves and What your purpose in Seychelles is.
I'm a social entrepreneur and International NGO consultant from Kurdistan of Iraq, I started my career when I was only 17, and fortunately I have been able to build a strong career in the world of development and especially youth empowerment, I was invited as international speaker for the Youth Festival, to speak about the importance of the 2030 Agenda, during the first conference in Seychelles on the SDGs.
Explain to us your work with youth and why you commit yourself with such work.
I see my work as a way to pay back to life and my community, I have had access to many unique opportunities myself compared to what other youth from middle class and middle lower class families could have access to, and as a result I became the strong woman I am today, so my work is basically for me to pass it around and help other youth have access to the same opportunities I had access to.
