Since she was 16 years old, Yassmin has been empowering young men and women single handedly. At the age of 16, she founded the organization, Youth Without Borders, an organization that encourages young people to realize their full potential through collaborative and community-based programs.
Since then, she has continued to make a name for herself. She has sat on the Australian Multicultural Council, was Head of Media on the Youth G20 Summit and currently sits on the Boards of ChildFund, The Council for Australian-Arab Relations (CAAR), and the domestic violence prevention organization, OurWatch. Yassmin’s advocacy work has been recognized with many awards. To name a few, she was Young Muslim of the Year in 2007, Muslim Youth of the Year in 2015, and was the youngest woman named in Australia’s 100 Women of Influence.
Yassmin has a true passion for speaking up for what she believes in and holds a strong desire to help others get the treatment they deserve. Throughout all of these accomplishments, she found the time to become a debut author at the age of twenty-four with her coming-of-age-memoir, Yasmin’s Story. During her triumph, she also had great success in becoming a Mechanical Engineer and her work was even recognized by the United Kingdom’s Institute of Mechanical Engineers. She was named one of Australia’s most influential engineers by Engineers Australia.
