Returning to Lebanon after the war, I did not find the opportunities I had expected when I left with a Fulbright scholarship. However, I have given a training on team building to a student representative body in one Lebanese University . I have also taught a course on Human Rights for freshly graduated police officers in the Lebanese Institute for Internal Security Forces. Currently, I am doing some consultancy work on restructuring and rewriting the policy and procedure for a charity organization. In all of these opportunities, there is a lot of experience but very little payment. Although I am enjoying my work, I think I should search for something else to sustain myself financially. Other than that, I am planning on pursuing a PHD study, and we will see how it goes.
