It is time to break down the barriers
« I quickly realized that I needed to be part of a movement that helps more communities find jobs and equal opportunity.»
I’ve had to leave home, Lebanon, one too many times for political and economic reasons that were beyond my control. Though I have been fortunate enough to navigate between two worlds my whole life and seek opportunity elsewhere, it was time to break down the barriers and to connect the amazing people in Lebanon to all the opportunities around the globe.
After co-founding Jobs for Lebanon and seeing how impactful it was to be part of a community, I quickly realized that I needed to be part of a movement that helps more communities find jobs and equal opportunity.
The weekly calls became the most inspiring conversations and, with every call, I found purpose and love in Jobs for Humanity.
