More updates on my freelancing work at the United Nations Association. Last month I conducted a phone interview with Ameerah Haq on the topic of women in high-ranking positions at the United Nations. The audio slideshow I created as a result accompanied an article written by Barbara Crossette for the 03 March edition of the United Nations Association bulletin.
The article by Crossette gives more detail of Ameerah Haq’s career and her recent promotion. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed Haq his Senior Representative for Timor Leste, making her one of the only two female peace-keeping chiefs.
In my interview with Haq, she talks about her life growing up in Bangladesh, her education in the United States and her brilliant career at the United Nations.
