Mervat has been working at NGOs for over 10 years in the UK and the Middle East. She is currently working as a Programme Officer (covering Iraq Programme) at an international humanitarian organisation.
Prior to that, Mervat was working in theatre management serving under-privileged children and young people through cultural and educational interventions. That’s what led her to completing her Master’s Degree in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy.
For Mervat, studying at Goldsmiths was one of the best experiences she had, the MA Degree allowed her to pursue a new career using the many transferable skills that she learnt, starting a new life in the UK and meeting many of her close friends there.
