Through IofC, she has worked in more than 20 countries studying their education system and observing their approaches to citizenship education. Currently, her main interest is exploring how to empower educators in Lebanon through self-discovery of civic agency and their role in shaping the country's policy instead of bearing the consequences of politics and poor governance that has led the country into despair.
