Nilufer was born in Urumqi and moved to Stockholm, Sweden when she was 7. She is currently studying International Migration and Ethnic Relations at Södertörns högskola due to her strong interests in migration theories, diversity and segregation, and how each of these issues relate to an individual’s identity. She is now interning with the Swedish Refugee Law Center in Stockholm. Congrats!
As she completes her studies this year, she wishes to continue her work with a focus on supporting refugees and asylum seekers, especially those who lack access or knowledge about asylum law. While this is a large issue and bringing support to these individuals might be difficult at first, Nilufer truly believes that every accomplishment in life begins with the decision to try, so we should never lose hope in ourselves or our abilities!
Nilufer also loves reading, especially Uyghur fictional novels. She loves music too, viewing it as a bridge to connect with others as well as express beautiful feelings. You can catch her in one of the #DontRushChallenge videos here: Instagram. Nilufer also takes pride in her excellent communication skills and always strives to lift others up. We wish her the best in her future endeavors!
