EU Project Manager of Center for Gender and Development Studies
American University of Iraq, Sulaimani
I am an Information Technology graduate from the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani. I hold a bachelor’s degree along with a minor in English Literature. I was always fascinated by how technology can change lives. In 2012, I had a life changing experience, a car crash. I lost two of my teeth and heavily damaged another two. I had to stay in bed for weeks. I was in my final year of high school, the most important year of a student’s life in Iraq. It is the deciding year of everyone in Iraq. The higher my mark in the baccalaureate the higher my chances to choose a major for myself. While in resting in bed, I had my iPhone to entertain me. That is when I was first introduced to Spoken Word Poetry. I learned so much from other people’s wounds. I decided that I will become a feminist and dedicate my life to helping others. Hence, my CV only has work experience in the humanitarian/educational sectors. Fast-forward to 6 years later, I am the EU Project Manager at Center for Gender and Development Studies in the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani. Our mandate is to end gender inequality in MENA region by providing education to the less fortunate.
