Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Back in my home country Kyrgyzstan I worked as an intern and volunteer at various international organizations and NGOs. The work at these organizations included involvement in various educational and social activities, inter-ethnic conflict resolution projects, election procedures, youth leadership, and providing academic advisement to students from the border towns in southern Kyrgyzstan. The most incredible experience I had at the OSCE funded Center for Multicultural and Multilingual Education, where I facilitated educational development through social services and administered many educational and cultural projects on diversity, peace-building and minority education. Moreover, I provided multicultural education counseling through ethnic arts and musical ethnocultural festivals. The main goal of CMME was promoting tolerance and peace through multicultural education.   
 
In the United States I worked at the International Rescue Committee, assisting the refugees and internally displaced persons from different parts of the world. I was also actively involved in volunteering with "Central Asia Foundation" and the "Uzbek Initiative group", where I participated in charitable events to help raise funds for the victims of June 2012 ethnic clashes in Kyrgyzstan and other individuals who were in need.  

In May 2012 I received a Rotary Peace Fellowship to pursue the master's degree in Conflict, security and development at the University of Bradford (United Kingdom).
Being affected by the violent conflict and fleeing my home country Kyrgyzstan in 2010, I believe that multiculturalism is a key to make the world a better place. For this reason I want to devote my life to a peace development mission worldwide!
