Faryab University, Faryab, Afghanistan, Lecturer

I served as a dedicated Lecturer at Faryab University from August 2020 to September 2022. During my tenure, I played a pivotal role in establishing the Architecture Department at the university, successfully navigating through exams and obtaining approval for the department's inception. As a testament to my capabilities and leadership, I was selected as the Head of the Department, a position conferred by the Ministry of Education in Afghanistan.

My responsibilities encompassed not only the delivery of architecture courses but also the strategic leadership necessary to initiate and oversee the department's activities. This role was particularly significant as it coincided with a challenging period marked by the Taliban's decision to disallow girls from pursuing education, leading to my eventual exit from the university.

Despite the challenges, my commitment to education and the advancement of the architecture department remained steadfast. I take pride in being the first Architecture Lecturer to establish and lead the department, contributing to the academic landscape of Faryab University and leaving a lasting impact on the educational legacy of the institution.
