Short Bio:

I hold a Master’s degree in Humanitarian Services which makes me proud, but I feel this even more because I always find myself thriving when facing challenges or hardship. For example, without any prior work experience about Customs and having almost everything against due to medical strikes and political interests; I displayed all my skills, used all my resources and professional contacts to get a cargo of medical supplies negligently abandoned, to make possible the implementation of a humanitarian medical mission. The mission was a success because hundreds of poor people were provided with free consultations and surgeries including the visit of the Vice-president of the country and Media participation.

Moreover, without any prior management experience during an internship, I was rushed to accept an interim management position when my boss resigned. Besides him, I was the only employee in the organization who knew everything about the Program who could handle the busiest season. I successfully represented the Program during 3 intense months working with the Media, key partners, the community, volunteers and other internal departments to provide free training, products, and services for hundreds of low income people at many community events in 6 counties
