Zahra is our Program Manager in Iraq where she acts as a teambuilder, partner evangelizer and occasional firefighter with our fellows.

Before joining Re:Coded, Zahra worked at Gaza Sky Geeks, Gaza’s first accelerator and coding school as well as startups based in London and Amsterdam, including Groupon, the world’s fastest growing company. She has also worked for the Gender Unit at UNRWA in Amman, and the Government and Political Affairs Branch at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague. Zahra holds a Bachelors with Honours degree from Goldsmiths College University of London in English and Drama, and a Cum Laude Master in International Relations from Leiden University.

When Zahra isn’t working, you can find her at the closest Nutella shop in Erbil, playing Call of Duty or watching hip hop violinists on YouTube.
