We are very happy to welcome Avan Soufy as our new Director of Student Services. Avan will focus on informing students in Kurdistan and the Greater Middle East about the opportunities offered by AST, and assisting with the recruitment process of AST Scholars. Avan will continue to provide AST Scholars with the support they need in order to identify the Canadian program of studies best suited to their needs, and to apply for admittance at the Canadian post-secondary institution of their choice.
Avan is currently studying in Paris, France, and will be back in Erbil, Iraq, to complete her B.A. In Politics and International Relations, in 2015. She has just returned from Dublin, Ireland where she was chosen to participate as Kurdistan Ambassador at the One Young World youth summit held there in October, 2014.
