I am passionate about advancing women's economic empowerment in emerging economies, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. I intend to devote my career to supporting female entrepreneurs in these markets and helping to integrate them into global supply chains. Specifically, I am interested in public-private partnerships and innovative financing mechanisms as a means for increasing female economic participation. 

Currently, I serve as a research associate at the Council on Foreign Relations in the Women and Foreign Policy program. My primary focus areas are women's economic empowerment, girls' education, and gender, peace, and security.
