As a true citizen of the world, Samina Ansari is passionate about human rights. Her background in law helps her in her projects like gender awareness and refugees. Most recently, she worked on a project on legal education in Kabul, Afghanistan, her country of birth. Life taught her the importance of being flexible and considering different standpoints in order to solve problems. She is often asked whether she feels Afghan or where does she consider “home” to be.
