Sara graduated from the Faculty of Economics and Political Science at Cairo University. She majored in political science, minored in public administration and graduated with a very good grade. After graduation, she joined the Lazord Fellowship hosted by the John D. Gerhart Center at the American University in Cairo (AUC). It was an eye-opening regional experience that provided her with professional and civic skills through a year-long job placement at the Civic Participation Program of the Danish Egyptian Dialogue Initiative (DEDI) as a program assistant. She considers this experience a milestone in her career that made her grounded and well-prepared to pursue a professional career in development sector. In 2022, she graduated with a Monitoring and Evaluation Diploma, offered by AUC. Currently, she works as a MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, and Learning) at Catholic Relief Services.
