I’m an Assistant Community Mobilizer at NRC an international NGO, I work with IDPs and serve the IDP community to help them for a better livelihood through coordination with other NGO’s. I love working as a volunteer because it gives me a sense of responsibility towards my community and I feel such a relief when I know I’m giving back to the community which i’m part of, another reason is I love engaging and interacting with people from different backgrounds and to help me in my volunteer work I have a strong contact with other NGO’s to make sure that we deliver the best results and provide the best services to the IDP/host community. I think of myself as a student of life and I like to constantly improve myself to become my best self I can. One of my strengths is I’m a self-taught person I like to teach myself and be a practical person in my daily life!I’m far away of being perfect but I always try my best in whatever I do. When I’m not working I would love to take some time off for myself and just enjoy the day by cooking something and share it with friends and family, I have many interests but One of my favorite hobbies is cooking! as I’m a self-taught Chef, I cook whenever I have the chance to, and in my free time I also like to read books and watch movies and research online about subjects that interest me. And last but not least I’m the type of person who never leaves something halfway Either I don’t do something or I take it to the finish line.
