I was also responsible for protection issues related to Cairo’s refugees, which included working on legal and protection problems with other partners. Through this role, I have developed excellent communication skills and can understand and break down complex information to quickly build others’ capacities.
My research interests include social work research and social justice, public policy, refugee and migration policy, education, youth, women’s empowerment, and community-based project development. Currently, I am an intern at Trust for Youth and Child Leadership (TYCL) International, Inc. I am also the founder and CEO of Youth for Development and Leadership Foundation (YDLF), a new initiative for youth in South Sudan, Sudan, and Egypt, with a particular focus on displaced youth.
YDLF is a youth-led, non-profit, and non-governmental organization that aims to empower South Sudanese youth through education, psychosocial support, livelihood, inter-communal peace initiatives, gender equality, civic engagements, training and leadership, environmental sustainability, and promote humanitarian assistance and development support in South Sudan.
