I was born in Baku, Azerbaijan. I graduated from Azerbaijan University of Languages with major in English Philology and did an MBA degree at Azerbaijan State Economic University with major in Management. I’ve had a number of experiences and worked for both local and foreign companies and international organizations such as Norwegian Microcredit Organisation (HR Officer); The British Council (Programmes Officer) and Azerbaijan University of Languages (Media Specialist). At present I work for UNDP Solid Waste Management Project in the capacity of Project Assistant. Simultaneously, I’m the Founder and Focal Point in Charge of Y-PEER Azerbaijan where I’m dealing with identifying main strategies and policies of the network and overall coordination of its activities. Apart from my native language, I’m fluent in English and Russian. Among my achievements are victory in an e-quiz, held by the British Council together with Oxford Reference Online; victory in the Writing Contest, held by the British Council; and victory in the best project proposal competition, run by World Federation of UN Associations–Youth (WFUNA-Youth) & UN Association- UK as the result of which I was awarded with a trip to Oxford, UK to participate in WFUNA Project Management Training & Oxford University Model UN.

What is better - prevention or cure?

thanks for providing your feedback, Bashir! totally agree with you! We hear talks about gender violence, STIs, HIV/AIDS, drug abuse,etc. from governmental and international organisations all the time but I guess everyone should understand the prevention of such present-day challenges lies in education at high schools and other educational institutions as its the schools and universities where an outlook and views on life of everyone are formed.
