Fatema Mustafa joined Lazord Fellowship to pursue her dream of becoming an advocate for Economic and Social Rights. During the fellowship year, she was placed as a Public Relations and Networking Officer at Egyptian Association for Economic and Social Rights (EAESR), where she represented the association in national and international conferences and meetings. Mustafa worked closely with EAESR team for the female domestic workers’ project that resulted in legislation changes nationwide later. Transitioning from her scientific educational background to storytelling and communication had to take a hands-on experience approach. 10 years later, Mustafa succeeded in owning a diversified worldwide clientele portfolio, supporting different governments, brands, startups, and NGOs with her skills in storytelling and expertise in digital marketing. Back in 2021, post COVID-19, Mustafa moved back to her home country hoping to make a change by collaborating with local NGOs. Since then, she has been working as a Senior Brand Manager for Ibrahim A. Badran Charitable Foundation, assisting in expanding its operations to reach targeted communities across Egypt and build its network of allies and supporters. She is also an active volunteer with Hospice Egypt (JOSAAB) Foundation & a pro-bono communication consultant for EAESR, her placement during the fellowship.
