Chef & Interpreter

Gulla Barin

Interpreter in Farsi, Persian Farsi & IT Professional

I like to work with this humanitarian organization for women, because I am one of them, whether in my country of northern Iraq or the UK. When you give others, not just wish or think about it, but you do it, you'll feel like you're human.  I find strength in participation and cooperation, because the expected result is not how much you did,  but what are doing together.
