I am passionate about

since I Co-founded the Together We Build it organization at age of 19 during the armed conflict in Libya, aiming to promote for a peaceful democratic transition through emphasizing the relevance role of women and youth in peace-building.
With a Five years’ experience working with UNSCR 1325, I co-initiated the 1325 Network in Libya, an umbrella of more than 30 women’s groups, youth led organizations and 55 independent activists, working all across the country to promote for the UNSCR 1325 through raising grassroots awareness and encourage women and young women to play an active role in the context of peace-building, conflict prevention and de-radicalization of society. In my work I train community activists and youth leaders on non-violent conflict resolutions, gender in conflict and peace-building, I also engage with young women, towards making them challenge the opinions around the stereotyped vulnerable positions of young women in the conflict zones, and encourage them to start local initiatives for peace-building in their communities.
I was also a researcher and co-author for the first civil society monitoring report from Libya, on the implementation of the UNSCR 1325 in 2014, that was part of the annual global women count report. my research role focused on role of women and young women in peace mediation, disarmament demobilization and reintegration DDR programs and security sector reform.
I'm also the MENA region focal point for the Youth Advocacy Team with the United Network of Young peace-builders, advocating for the implementation of UNSCR 2250 on youth peace and security.
