Nancy Otoom was born in 1990 in Jordan, and obtained a master’s degree in law. Since 2010, she has been working in different INGOs in the humanitarian field, research, training and advocacy. She has won three national awards in the field of research and moot courts, and one regional competition.

She started her professional experience in 2012 when she was accepted to the Lazord Fellowship Program and was placed at INJAZ Jordan. This opened the door for her ambitions, achievements, inspirations and opportunities. She has published two research papers:  “The guarantees of fair trial,” with the National Center for Human Rights in Bahrain, and, “Multinational corporation violations against human rights according to United Nations principles,” in Derasat Journal with the University of Jordan.

Nancy is currently working in the field of juvenile justice, providing high level training to formal and informal actors. She is looking for continuous development and any opportunities that would help her to achieve her goals.
