Ruwaida Mohamed


Ms. Mohamed was born and raised in Kenya. She is passionate about development, particularly in East and West Africa. She completed her master’s degree at the University of Edinburgh in Africa and International Development and continues to work on various issues within the development sector such as peace and conflict, public health, migration, and education. During her master’s degree, she focused on issues affecting the Horn of Africa, particularly during the COVID era, a key challenge being teenage pregnancies and sexual violence.

For this reason, she works with the GNRC on issues affecting young women and children in relation to sexual and gender-based violence, health and hygiene, and the food crisis. As a young African woman, she acknowledges the potential young people in Africa hold in creating change, affecting policy, and taking a stance within government. To ensure future generations are not part of the current poverty cycle affecting many African States, she would like to be part of the team that makes a change in her community, country, and continent!
