Ahmad is originally from Syria and now is based in the UK. He specialises in Cultural Orientation, Integration, Community Cohesion and Community Engagement.
Ahmad graduated with Master of Science (MSc) with concentration on Violence, Conflict and Development from SOAS, University of London. He also collected his Bachelor’s Degree in Literature English from Aleppo University, Syria, where he originally comes from. Ahmad had also lived in Iraq where he worked as a volunteer teaching English in the Syrian refugee camps and later on joined the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) as a senior Communication for Development (C4D) Facilitator. His work gave him the opportunity to be in direct contact with Syrian refugees and Iraqi displaced people who have survived horrendous circumstances resulting from both conflicts in Iraq and Syria. In early 2015, Ahmad was forced to flee Iraq due to the deterioration of the security situation and moved to the UK in mid-2015. The journey took 55 days and was partly documented in the BBC documentary Exodus: Our Journey.
