An MA graduate in Arabic and Social Anthropology and MSc graduate in Nationalism Studies from the University of Edinburgh, I also have extensive experience as a journalist in a leading Norwegian newspaper. Over the past few years, I have increasingly become involved in the Scottish third sector, notably by volunteering for Scottish Refugee Council and Gather Festival Edinburgh. I have also been an Intern at UN House Scotland for nearly two years. As well as my job at EPIC, I work as an interpreter for various public sector institutions across Edinburgh. In addition to my native Norwegian and English, I am also fluent in Danish, Swedish and Greek.
A bit about my organisational mission / the work that I do...

In Scotland, EPIC aims to influence public policies on employment and social inclusion of marginalised groups, initiate and assist in preparation and implementation of programmes aimed at increasing employment on local level and raise awareness of employment of people with various disabilities.
