"Being surrounded by such a group of amazing change makers and influential people, I was encouraged to pursue my passions."
Lynn Tabbara is the organizer of TEDxCoventGardenWomen, an event that deals with questions of gender and identity. In 2013, she also co-founded Intaliqi, an NGO with a clear objective: "to give a voice to socially disadvantaged women by stripping away limiting labels and stereotypes."
In the future, this NGO aims to expand its aid to Palestine women refugees, Lebanese women and teenage mothers. Intaliqi also hopes to open a girls’ school and provide informal education to young displaced Syrian women.
Tabbara values the time she spent in Madrid as a student of the IE International MBA. "It not only enriched me intellectually and academically, but introduced me to a very inspiring network of friends that has added valued to my life in every aspect."
