Nothing is more rewarding and encouraging than being surrounded by wonderful people, especially under challenging circumstances. I wanted to thank everyone for the great support and care I have received from you to attend the Sarajevo Symposium. I am so grateful for the great amount of love, cooperation, flexibility, and generosity that everyone showed to make this event a reality for me. I cannot emphasize enough how important and useful the Sarajevo Symposium on Post-Conflict Transition was for me, particularly when my city of Mosul is passing through this phase now after the war is over.
With the knowledge that I gained from this event, I will be able to actively participate in a peaceful transition process in the city of Mosul mainly through education. The lectures that we had throughout the two weeks in Sarajevo were so dense in information and experiences about real-life examples on conflict resolution and transition. I was so lucky to meet and receive knowledge from prominent figures in the field of peace building and policy-making. Moreover, in each class, I could identify with and relate to the experiences shared by the speakers and the participants. Now I feel equipped with the necessary theories and practical and beneficial solutions to help support the peace process in Mosul.
I would like to express my gratitude again for all the donors and supporters who contributed to cover the costs of my participation in this event. I would also like to thank the International Peace & Security Institute at Creative Learning and the Sarajevo School for Science and Technology staff for their support and wonderful organization of this event. I look forward to helping to host a similar event in Iraq and particularly in Mosul. Thank you for yourgenerosity and giving me such a wonderful experience. I would love to reciprocate if you are ever in Iraq. Thank you!
