“The Saïd Foundation plays a pivotal role in the region and its scholarships have positively impacted the lives of many over the years. Studying in the UK is a truly life and skills shaping experience. I wish for the Saïd Scholars to make the most of their time in the UK and to remain committed to their home countries wherever their future paths lead them.”
Samia has over two decades experience in developing, implementing and evaluating educational and community development projects with refugee and other communities, primarily in the Middle East. She has worked with a number of local and international NGOs, charitable foundations, the UN, and other international agencies.
Samia is currently the CEO of the Horizon Foundation (UK). The Foundation supports the education of young people from refugee communities and areas of conflict, particularly Palestinians, Syrians, Tibetans and Afghans.
