His most recent work was with the Norwegian Refugee Council, in a middle managerial role as the Project Coordinator for the organization’s Education programme. His under graduate thesis on Traditional Reconciliation Processes of Conflict Resolution and work with the Youth Coalition for Peace deeply inspired him to pursue a peace-building career.
