Heela Barakzai

My name is Heela Barakzai. I have 10 years of working experience in women/girls’ empowerment and promotion of  gender and human rights with US projects in Afghanistan, different embassies and the Afghan Government. I have also worked as a teacher for 5 years in an International School in Afghanistan. My bachelor's degree is in law with a specialization in Justice. I came to the US with a Special Immigrant Visa in December 2017, and since then have worked as a volunteer ESOL teacher with Hugh Mercer Elementary School.  I am capable of communicating in 6 languages, and I have 2 beautiful kids.

I live in downtown Fredericksburg, and my goal is to work for children and women's education around the globe. I am halfway through my Master’s in Education with University of Phoenix.

I love spending time with my kids and knitting. 

I am looking forward to getting to know you all.
