Empower Series: Aroub Abu Abta

Prior to joining IRI’s Empower program in Jordan, at age 22, Ms. Aroub Abu Abta was yet to form any particular ambitions for her life.

Soon after becoming an Empower member, she began to establish new personal goals. For instance, she decided to further her education and is now studying Business Administration at Yarmouk University. She also became an active volunteer at her local Princess Basma Center for Development.

Significantly, she was so motivated and inspired by the workshops she attended during Empower that she began teaching the skills she learned to many other young women in her community. She has already personally organized and led 15 workshops on communication and negotiation skills modeled after the classes she received from IRI.
