You power women, you can do anything

I live in refugee camps southwest of Algeria, I moved to study in several cities in Algeria from the age of 11 years, I moved away from the family and at that point I had a responsible person from a young age. I studied English at the university. I worked in the field of volunteer for several years and worked with the Students Union and  The Landmine Victims Organization, then I worked in the area of ​​sensitization with the Danish dimining group(DDG) and head of the nonviolence group in Western Sahara(NOVA) for two years before that Coordinated . I now work as the leader of the Women’s Role in Peacebuilding (1325) and Youth Project Resolution 2250 here in refugees. He has experience managing dialog, conflict analysis and coordination.I like to support the women of the world and their rights as well as children and refugees. "Every woman in the world has power and intelligence that can change the world with him."

Dear Maglana, thank you so much for being the real you. It is hard for a girl to be a refugee, but you are only a physical refugee for the time being but in the mind you have already liberated yourself, and that is what matters the most because with the perfect mindset there is nothing that you cannot conquer. All the best dear in your endeavors.
