I am a graduate from SOAS University in London, in BSc International Management for the Middle East and North Africa. Despite my courses focusing on an economic and commercial perspective mostly , I had the chance to also discover the socio-economic realities of my region of interest, I.e. The Middle East. My academic interest in the region combined to my experience in Jordan have-in a way-been a trigger leading to a new found life purpose. Indeed, as I spent a year in Jordan in 2015, I really found myself wanting to fully grasp the meaning of the Syrian crisis, what did it really mean for Syrians, neighboring countries and the rest of the world. This really led my to understand how I wanted to dedicate my efforts to humanitarian and International development work. Aside from that, I am a theatre (especially musicals), literature and classical music fan, and I love studying languages
