Dedicated to migrant rights, African diaspora engagement, and capacity building, Hanna’s journey has led her to opportunities in the United States and abroad. She has experience working and interning in refugee resettlement, case management, and immigration, as well as international education and program coordination.
During undergrad, she studied abroad for a semester in Amman, Jordan, where she had the opportunity to support Syrian refugee families. After completing her BA in Intercultural Studies and Sociology from DBU, she worked in Sousse, Tunisia as a Liaison between the U.S. State department and AMIDEAST. There, she worked closely with youth and young professionals and coordinated with local civil society for events, programs, and workshops.
With a desire to better understand the migration-development nexus and interrogate the policy that has shaped both the historic and current refugee regime, she later completed her MSc in Migration, Mobility, and Development from SOAS University London. Her produced work focuses on the Ethiopian Diaspora and capacity building in the form of knowledge and skills transfer.
In her free time, she enjoys discovering local eats and exploring nature and the arts.
