I am a passionate educator with more than 20 years experience in the academic and consultancy worlds. I was educated in three continents and have taught in 2. I spent the last 15 years teaching in some of the top universities/programs in the U.S. I specialize in communication, international development/ relations, and human rights include gender and youth.
I have a rich/broad experience in mentoring the young to transition from high school to college, and from college to their first jobs. Because of my multilingual and multicultural background, I have supported students in adjusting their skills to their interests and the interests of the market. I have also helped young people make education and career choices, provided support during application processes and most importantly built their confidence to deploy their strengths and assets to achieve their goals.
Because I’m a deep believer in gender justice and equal opportunity for all, I am very supportive of the young in their diversity and differences. I take great satisfaction in guiding the young generation towards achieving their best and I rejoice in their successes. Mentors have played a key role in my own professional accomplishments. I seek to provide the best mentorship I’m capable of.
