Lana Koubaitary (2022):
“ During the past year, I have worked as the Administrative Assistant to the President of the Society for the Advancement of Science and Technology in the Arab world (SASTA). Working in this capacity highly enhanced my organizational and interpersonal skills and taught me how to coordinate project activities and communicate with relevant stakeholders.
As a volunteer, I recently led the implementation of the Global Conference for Diaspora Networks in Science. My role required me to manage a team of volunteers and guide them through the creation of their tasks, which taught me a lot about effective communication, time management, and compassionate mentoring.
When you volunteer at SASTA, you never stop learning, developing new skills, gaining new insights about different communities, organizations, and fields, as well as learning more about yourself.
I have had a very fruitful year at SASTA, and I encourage everyone with the time and skills to apply. “
