Salma Ben Khelifa

Through the Lazord Fellowship, Salma had the chance to be part of the most prominent NGOs within the Tunisian Ecosystem and she was lucky enough to have a team that strongly believed in her! She had the chance to experiment within the organization, first having responsibilities working with civil society partner organizations, then moving on to having a role in public relations. It has definitely been an enriching experience where she got to learn more about the Tunisian ecosystem, and in return give back to the organization.
