I am a 51 year old Indian woman born in Burma and raised in Hong Kong who is currently living in Britain. My parents are Muslims and have taught me Islam although I am not a practicing Muslim.
I understand the difficulties facing women in both developing countries and developed countries.
I am a mother of 3 teenagers, two of whom are girls therefore, the idea of transforming this world to work for girls in the future is very close to my heart.
I am now at a crossroads of my life desperately looking for work in a country that still "discriminates" against women and especially older women. This is not openly expressed but it happens in practice.
I have always been passionate about the struggles of people around the world. My family faced with some those struggles when I was very young in being displaced from their home, learning to live in a foreign country, respecting each others cultures and values. These changes had huge impact on my life and how I think.
I worked with the UNHCR for 10 years before committing to full-time motherhood. I did not completely stay away from assisting people. I continued to work in a job that helped families struggling financially. I hope to continue to contribute to humanity in any way I can.
The idea of World Pulse journal impresses me a lot and look forward to be actively involved and support the work that you do. Kareema making a difference where I can. Improve in the way that I think and offer my skills and experienes to help others Administration, Office Management, Mentoring, Case Management
My Vision for the Future
Older Women treated as people who can still contribute to society
