سلام و درود بر همگی
I have worked in various capacities in the development sector for over 10 years. A pivotal part was based out of Bangkok where I worked with highly marginalized populations across Asia and the Pacific. Particularly, I supported youth volunteer movements in the response to HIV, working on communication, education, access, advocacy, and gender and sexual diversity — with grassroots communities, NGOs, and the UN. Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I was working with UNESCO in Afghanistan on education reform and curriculum design with a focus on lifelong learning, 21st century skills, digital literacy, and critical engagement with knowledge — in a setting gripped with misinformation and disinformation.
Lover of culture and travel, and an avid learner, I am a Wikimedian at heart, and excited to bring my perspective and experience in international coordination, communication, and partnerships to a movement that strives to reach for knowledge equity in the world.
