Amna’s studies and work have centered around the concept that “considering the information communication advancements of the 21st century, there is a dire need for individuals to come forward and shape a new world interaction based on understanding, compassion, cooperation, and human values.” She sees a great need to encourage the people to engage in critical thinking, research, and investigation to avoid seeing others solely through a “prism of nationality, race, gender, religion or culture.” She has extensive experience in facilitating international cultural exchange dialogues; building coalitions, based on human values, around the world. Looking forward to collaborate with you all to create a better and happier here, now, and beyond.
