Arij, a highly dedicated and ambitious person, holds a bachelor’s degree in English and is a recent M.A. graduate in English Literature. She has worked as an online translator with an international company. This experience shaped her skills and helped her to become proficient in quick and precise translation. However, Arij has always wondered about ways of introducing change to the world. She decided to explore working with organizations that focus on social change. Volunteering within WeYouth organization granted her the chance to dive deeper into civic engagement and opened her perspectives. The Lazord Fellowship came right on time. It allows her to build her capacities and grants her the chance to implement her newly acquired skills to create change in her region. She is currently placed at the Tunisian Association Against Sexually Transmitted Diseases and AIDS (ATL MST SIDA Sfax) where she is on a continuous journey of learning. Arij will continue wandering and wondering, constantly looking for new challenges to further improve her performance.
