Why I joined This Group
I am Sabiha Hasan from India. I am from a family of landlords (farmers) from Uttar Pradesh, India. Thus, I am a Naturalist, Biologist and Environmentalist with my heart and soul in it. I am a double post graduate i.e Master's in Plant Sciences and M.B.A. in HR. Recently I did a module on entrepreneurship as I want to start my own NGO (VNoW - Virtual Network of Women) for Women Empowerment.
I am volunteering since the age of 8 years and worked for various social causes within orphanages, locality, community, school, city, state level and NGOs (National and International), . Since June 2015, I am a Volunteer Project Manager (HR Team) for Paajaf Foundation, Accra, Ghana and a Welcomer with World Pulse.
For three years I worked as a research scholar in Plant Pathology Lab as a Plant Nematologist in Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Then I moved to the corporate world and since last 10+ years, I worked in different domains such as Administration/Customer Service and HRM. But I am passionate about community service and biology i.e. agriculture/forestry/environment and ecology/genetics/bioinformatics etc. Being honest I do not remember how I arrived at World Pulse. I will say luck by chance. I was searching for some women NGO to volunteer with. I googled a keyword and this name popped up in my search engine results. When I checked this portal I realised that by chance through google God guided me to a right place. It was something I wanted or dreamed about. A network of global women changemakers and leaders. I realised it's a right place to connect, learn and share knowledge and experiences with like-minded women from all over the world. I am a biologist by birth i.e. from 3rd standard I studied only one subject that was Science. I was determined that my heart lies in nature with plants and animals. Finally, a point came when I realised I am a jungle person who won't mind spending whole life living alone in a cottage in a forest. After leaving the field of biology in 2005. I kept on missing it and now after seeing this group on WorldPulse. I realised that this subject is not my profession but it's my passion. So, this is an amazing place to write, share and read about bio enthusiasts. I am interested in addressing global environmental issues and role of women in agriculture in Asia and Africa. I am planning to provide online training or workshop to women on these issues through my NGO. The reason to join this group as I want to start a project where I will launch an online magazine about the latest trend in the field of biology and environmental issues. From this group I will get inspiration, networking with global thought leaders, ideas, resources and will share my project work, progress as well as articles here. http://www.world-environmentalism.club
