I am passionate about

Actions

I have engaged in blogging scheme work to change the narrative of how African women especially Tunisian women perceive themselves as being ugly; This fat shaming was analysed by me and my organisation Young Leaders Entrepreneurs to study the psychological.I started a campaign entitled " I AM ENOUGH; to deconstruct both the slut shaming and fat shaming into a system of ethos where women value themselves and their truly Who are they.After the successful One Billion Rising event where 5000 women danced on Break the chain song to celebrate their womanliness, I have designed the successful event She Can which is a TED format conference hosting successful and inspirational women leaders. We had more than 1500 audience from civil society stakeholders to watch out this newly concept of creating a platform for women to express their insecurities, and construct a gender equality based values and appreciation for female leadership in a society structured by socially and culturally constructed gender-based inequalities, violence and patriarchy. Following that, I have launched a national accelerator program named SHE STARTUP to mentor 4000 women coming from the poorest regions in Tunisia on how to become entrepreneurs. They were equipped with the necessary skills on how to manage a business.my work themed also around a the-political representation of women in Tunisia. She Leads Movement bridged understanding of how to mentor women affiliated to political parties. I have founded also the Unleash Tunisia Venture bus which is a national wide based Bus touring the country to coach newly graduates on how to hunt jobs and create start-ups by attending our workshops in the bus and visiting local success stories. Not to forget, the peace lab which is the first educational incubator in the country to educate youth about the danger of extremism and violent groups through IT solutions and capacity building programs.
