Get to know Sari

 

What is it that you do at Refugees Forward?

I’m the Manager of our Rotterdam Incubator.

What is the best thing about Refugees Forward?

That we give refugees a chance to take the initiative again in a new country, where everything is different from the environment that they came from.

What are things that make you happy in life?

Seeing the results of helping people.

Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

I see myself continuing to be involved with refugee causes. If not in the Netherlands, maybe in some other country where there is less being done. I’d like to continue to enable refugees to reach independence, be it through starting their own businesses or by other means.

If you could give us one piece of wisdom, what would it be?

Don’t celebrate too early.
