Northumberland Community Outreach Assistant
Languages: English; Arabic
Anna was born and raised in Syria, and she came with her family to Canada in September 2016.
She has a Bachelors Degree in Journalism from the Faculty of Mass Communication in Damascus, Syria. She worked as a reporter and news editor in daily newspapers and websites for more than 10 years, and she focused her articles on woman empowerment and children’s rights in Syria.
Anna understands from her own experience as a refugee the challenges and difficulties that newcomers can experience, and she felt that volunteering is the best way to help people who are having the same experience. She volunteered with NCC as well as the food bank in Cobourg in the Northumberland region.
Outside the NCC, Anna enjoys cooking, biking, and traveling with her family to discover new places.
