Noor is one of two JRS trainers working at JRS and Konexio’s Digital Inclusion Program (DIP) in Amman, Jordan. The DIP was launched in Jordan this fall. The first cohort is made up of 30 students from diverse backgrounds, including refugees and young Jordanians. We asked Noor to tell us about her experience as a DIP trainer.

Could you introduce yourself?
My name is Fardosa and I am from Somalia. In 2009, our family fled to Kenya from the conflict in our country. There’s eight of us: our parents, five girls and one boy.
How did you join the digital freelancing program?
After I completed my secondary education, I heard about the opportunity to learn digital skills and I decided to apply. I became a beneficiary [of RefuSHE] in June 2021. [Fardosa continued to the digital freelancing course in spring of 2022].
