I grew up in a mountainous village and came to Australia in 2000 with my family. Prior to coming to Australia I was a journalist at the Arabic radio station. I have always felt inspired to assist others in the pursuit of their goals, I am encouraged by colleagues and leaders who carry out their work in a respectful and empowering manner. I have a keen interest in different cultures, migration and people’s journey through resettlement. I am meticulous in my work and like everything to be in order, working in the not for profit world has definitely challenged my perfectionism and helped me to learn flexibility. I love gardening and reading!
