Ekram Ahmad, Occupational Therapist but a volunteer before everything! She is interested in health, education, youth, and human rights. She started volunteering and civic engagement since she was in school, starting with being an alumna of Access English Micro scholarship Program by the U.S. Embassy with more than 400 hours of learning English and community service.

She continued her journey in taking various trainings that shaped her personality and improved her skills. Since, giving back to her local community was always what she thought makes a real impact, she volunteered as a facilitator, mentor and program coordinator in local organisations and youth initiatives in Zarqa, in different projects such as Juveniles Justice and Children Summer Camp.

After graduation from Hashemite University with an excellence degree in Occupational Therapy, she decided to dive into a new adventure, so she applied for the Lazord Fellowship to gain work experience in NGOs and decide her future career path. Working in development sector is where she feels belonging, because she likes working with the community and with vulnerable groups. Acceptance, openness, and respect are her core life values. She considers herself to be a smooth communicator, organised coordinator, and detail-oriented person. Her future vision is to leave an impact in her small world by trying to be better and do better every single day.
