From the 14th of October of 2019, OBESSU has a new Programme Assistant who will be supporting the Secretariat and specifically the Secretary General in its daily work. Her name is Mariam Barhandi, from Italy, living in Brussels for the past years. 

Mariam has a multicultural background, reason why she loves languages and to be in contact with different cultures. She studied Law at the University of Charleroi, and has worked for several years in some European and International NGO's, working closely with the Council of Europe. Her focus and knowledge on aspects related to Migration, Refugees, Inclusion, Women and Children Rights are her biggest passions and strength key. Mariam hopes to make the most out of this opportunity within OBESSU!

She loves humour and positive energy!
