When I was fourteen, a wise person told me I’d be a citizen of the world. I didn’t believe him at the time, for growing up as a woman in the Middle East I was told I couldn't travel alone, even for the shortest trip.

I was also told that a career in the non-profit sector would take me nowhere. But they were wrong – it took me around the world, allowing me to live in different cities and to travel off the beaten track, making deep connections with people and places and learning which solutions work and which don't.

The minute I started questioning certain things in the social sector, I knew I wanted to be a consultant. I now work with teams of researchers and consultants whose ethics and methodologies enrich my work and will add value to your organization.
