Hamdi Kosar joined the CURE team as a consultant and collaborator in February 2019. She is working on an equity in democracy project entitled, “We All Do Better.” This program is a hybrid interactive training in which participants learn components of civic participation, leadership, and community organizing principals. There will be a special focus on the intentional inclusion of typically underrepresented communities; however, all are welcome to participate. This is a part of CURE’s Rural Democracy Project and is funded by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Healthy Communities initiative. She looks forward to guiding participants through this challenging, groundbreaking and life-changing experience. The program will be accepting new participants from February to August 2019.
Hamdi was born and raised in Africa, especially in a refugee camp, and came to America when she was twelve years old. She is pursuing a career in advocacy. Previously, she worked as a caseworker for action agency where she helped families with their basic needs. She started working with ISAIAH as a leader in 2017. She believes education is the key to success, and she tries to connect her passion for education with her desire to help others. Hamdi wants to make a difference in people’s life by giving them the knowledge that they need.
