July 20, 2011
For over 10 years, I have built bridges between Europe and Middle Eastern communities through my work with medical institutions and I have founded a range of NGO’s that work on women’s rights, the trafficking of young children and on interfaith and intercultural international projects. I have also travelled extensively to give lectures and deliver workshops to interfaith groups in countries such as Taiwan, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
I am the founder of SCEME – Social Change Through Education in the Middle East. This not for profit organisation works on education for women and families and is also working on stopping the trafficking of young females from Iraq to neighbouring countries in the Middle East.
I can speak multiple languages such as Arabic, English, French, Italian and Hebrew and have been a youth interfaith ambassador to ensure the development of mutual understanding and joint social action between faith communities.
