I am a social entrepreneur and international NGO consultant from Kurdistan of Iraq. I started my career when I was only 17 and started working in civil society after my participation in the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange program, a highly competitive exchange program for Iraq and Kurdish youth to participate in 4 to 6 weeks of leadership training in the US. I went through very intensive training on various topics with the US Department of State and other international organizations here offered training in return for my volunteer services.
I currently have different positions in different fields; I work as a professional and business development manager at Qaiwan Group, one of the biggest private sectors in the region. My job mainly focuses on capacity building and professional development within the organizational structure of the company, leading new business startups; sometimes I’m required to do Public Relations for the company as well.
