I was born and grew up in the city of  Darra, southern  Syria.  I have studied law at Damascus University and graduated in 2004, then continued my studies in Egypt, where I obtained a My PhD in law from Cairo University in 2011, Thesis entitled “International Cooperation to Combat Terrorism Crimes”. Until 2015, I worked as Lawyer and lecturer at Damascus University, and the Syrian Virtual University, teaching Criminal Law and international criminal law.When the crisis began in Syria in 2011, I did not imagine that things would get to this bad, Death, destruction and displacement, I lived through war for few years, but as a result of the worsening violence in Syria, I had to leave.I moved to the UK  in 2015, where I’m currently live and work as a visiting research fellow in the department of war studies at King’s College London, interested in furthering my research on international criminal law, terrorism and international responses to war crimes in Syria.I believe that there is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up, so I joined BRS as a volunteer in 2016 which gave me an opportunity to contribute to support those in need.I was invited to join the Board of Trustees of BRS in 2017  where I’m now, and proud, we all working together to ensure that BRS has a clear strategy and that its work and goals are in line with its vision to help refugees and asylum seekers…
