Doha Debates Ambassador 2024

Arifa Atayee graduated from Kabul University in 2021 with a degree in computer science. She left Afghanistan due to security threats and currently lives in Iran. Her favorite hobbies are reading and participating in social programs and group activities. As a civil activist, she has received many awards and honors, including participation in the National Youth Conference. In the future, she wants to become a businesswoman, because women in Afghanistan are excluded from business and education. She also wishes to succeed in global scholarship and obtain her master’s degree. She applied to be a Doha Debates ambassador to meet different people, get to know different cultures and share the problems of Afghan women in the hopes of finding a solution.
