As an active member of the Inner Wheel for over 3 decades since 1988, and a founding member of the Philadelphia Club in Jordan, I have had the privilege to work with many dear colleagues on much needed local and regional projects that have benefited thousands of lives, particularly of women and children. Through the Inner Wheel, I have met many impressionable people from around the world at numerous regional and International Inner Wheel conferences, who have become long-life friends and sources of inspiration.
Our region is going through troubling times and a lot of misconception comes along with that. I believe that I can bring a much-needed positive representation as a strong advocate for unity, tolerance and diversity.
The mission of the Inner Wheel is needed now more than ever in Jordan- the largest refugee hosting country, the region and the world. There is no doubt in my mind that our clubs can grow and continue to attract membership dedicated to support its cause. As with any institution, strong leadership and mentorship are key to sustainability. I am committed to dedicating my experience and time to the next generation of leaders.
I have held similar positions with the YWCA and the Ikebana International Club which share parallel causes of friendship, service and goodwill. My late husband was a dedicated Rotarian, and together, we worked towards advancing world understanding and peace.
