What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
I aim to empower girls and women by focusing on positively developing communication confidence, teamwork, mental health, and motivational skills. I want to empower the vulnerable women who left education for culture or financial issues, to call for more equal environment in term of education, jobs, and other discrimination issues that women suffer from in Sudan, and to stop women from being subordinated to men and have their own integrity and freedom to follow their dreams.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
At our initiative, we aim to build not only the educational side but also the interpersonal skills of women so that they can engage and communicate with the outside world confidently. We aim to build talents such as handcraft, drawing, singing, and writing.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
Reading, volunteering, civil work activities, photographing, exploring, and learning.
