CERTIFICATES AND SKILLS
In 2017, I published my first poem collection in Arabic, entitled, When My Path Went Crazy. It was launched at The Sharjah International Book fair. This experience of seeing on paper my own creation of Arabic poetry, was most satisfactory. I am working on my second collection now, it will be printed soon this year. I have spent 6 months in Genoa – Italy, studying migration studies, this was within the European student exchange program ERASMUS+. This experience has improved my understanding of other cultures even further, through daily contact with students from other nationalities.
I have also lived in Spain and France for several years and maintain close ties with both countries. In 2011, I joined SWEA (Swedish Women's Educational Association in Paris) an association that works for promoting Swedish culture and traditions. I was during three years in charge of membership administration and communication between the Board and its members and other SWEA branches around the world. I was also a member of SWEA’s committee for Intercultural Relations.
I created CineRom, an art cinema club at the Romance Languages Department of Stockholm University, I managed copyright issues for film projections and coordination with the relevant cultural institutions, such as the Institut Français and Instituto Cervantes, as well as selecting the appropriate academics and experts to lead the after- film talks.
