MSc Gender, Development and Globalisation
Heba has recently graduated from the American University in Cairo, having majored in Economics (with minors in Anthropology and Development Studies). She is the co-founder of ‘Heya’ (She), Egypt's first student organisation to focus on mobilising students towards empowering women and gaining an understanding of the gendered angle of social issues. Her interest in the field began with an internship with UN Women, after which she went on to participate at social entrepreneurship and women's leadership conferences in Chicago and Frankfurt. During her studies at LSE, she will focus on feminist economics and population policy in Egypt.
