MY HEREAFTER PROJECT | Jan 2018 - Jun 2020


As the main organizer of My Hereafter Project, I have had the opportunity to make a positive impact in vulnerable communities by focusing on helping the needy. Our main goal has been to provide free health screenings and education to those who need it most so that they can make informed decisions about their health and well-being. One of our key initiatives has been to train women in soap making and sewing, providing them with an alternative source of income to help them support and care for their families. By equipping them with the necessary skills, we hope to empower them to achieve financial stability and improve their overall living conditions. In addition to our work with women, we have also provided food to prisoners during Ramadan to help them fast and break their fasting in a healthy way. This is a small but significant way that we can help those who are less fortunate and in need of support. Our mission at My Hereafter Project is to make a positive impact in the lives of those who are most in need, and we are proud of the progress we have made so far. We believe that by working together, we can help to build a brighter future for vulnerable communities and create a better world for all.

University for Development Studies | Sep 2018 - Jul 2019

Teaching Assistant

As a teaching assistant in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University for Development Studies, I played a crucial role in supporting students and faculty in the field of epidemiology. Under the supervision of a senior epidemiology lecturer, I assisted in the planning and delivery of lectures and seminars and helped to develop and grade coursework and exams. In addition to my instructional duties, I provided academic support to students, offering guidance and advice on assignments and coursework, and assisting with research projects and data analysis. I was responsible for managing course materials and resources, and for maintaining accurate records of student performance. Working as a teaching assistant at the University for Development Studies allowed me to gain valuable experience in nutritional sciences and epidemiology. It also provided me with the opportunity to develop my teaching and communication skills and to work closely with faculty and students to support the academic mission of the university. Overall, I am proud of the work that I accomplished during my time as a teaching assistant, and I look forward to using the skills and experience that I gained in this role to make a positive impact in my future endeavours.
