Grassroot Diplomat is proud to welcome Sara Rahim as the latest addition into its ever-expanding Advisory Council. The second American to be joining the group, Sara is a Pakistani American youth advocate who is the United Nations Youth Ambassador. She has worked in a variety of settings to promote interfaith cooperation and intercultural exchange, recently serving as a St. Louis Coro Fellow in Public Affairs.  She has studied Arabic in Egypt, offered health education workshops for undocumented female migrants in Morocco, and organised an educational summer camp for underprivileged youth in Jordan. Her international advocacy efforts also include global health, youth empowerment, and refugee/migration issues. 

Sara has worked in refugee resettlement at World Relief, and with Interfaith Youth Core, coaching students to be leaders of interfaith action. She has spoken prominently about the role of interfaith cooperation to institutions across the United States and in Europe. Sara is a UN Youth Representative to Parliament of the World’s Religions, and she recently delivered the youth keynote address to the United Nations for World Interfaith Harmony Week.

Sara currently resides in Washington, D.C., and she hopes that faith-based partnerships will continue to empower communities in conflict.
