My Portfolio of Projects

Technical Information

I want to change the perceptions of the world about refugees and shape the narratives around the Refugee Crisis. I would like the world to see refugees as people they can collaborate and work together with to achieve common goals, not only as victims of violence and war.

I am the Founder and Chairperson of Refugee Youth Peace Ambassadors, a youth-led group which brings together refugee youth from different nationalities and backgrounds who are contributing to the building of positive peace in their communities. Our initiatives help to enhanced peaceful coexistence between the refugees’ communities in the camp.
