I am a Norwegian-Afghan jurist who was born during the civil war in Afghanistan, and are now based in Oslo. As the CEO and founder of Brighter Tomorrow, I have secured the education of more than 2,200 children and youth in Afghanistan.

Our social media fundraiser campaigns have reached more than 600 000 users, and more than 10 million readers and viewers in traditional press (HuffPost, El Pais, BBC etc). With the aim of helping the most marginalised children, I have also developed the first EdTech platform in Afghanistan and installed it at a public school in Kabul with 200 children enrolled in the program.

My advocacy work includes acting as a UN Youth Delegate on several occasions, proposing policies at Norwegian parliamentary hearings, and discussing youth and peacebuilding in panel discussions with former UNSG Ban Ki Moon and Director-General of UNESCO Irina Bokova. I have also received a UN award and held a speech in the UN General Assembly Hall in front of 1,600 youth delegates.
