I'm Zineb, the founding director of the Arts and Culture Initiative for All. ACIA is a Moroccan NGO that provides arts classes to children from disadvantaged backgrounds in the economically challenged neighborhood of Yaacoub El Mansour in Rabat. As a lover of art and human expression in all their forms, I believe in the unlimited potential of arts to develop fulfilled and creative individuals that will benefit their environment and society. I am also a fervent believer in social justice and I think everybody should be given a chance to reach their potential and develop their skills, which is why I created ACIA. I am convinced that we could help a lot of impoverished kids to turn their challenging situations into creative power. Aside from this, I am a program coordinator in a democracy-building organization in Morocco, and hold a Bachelor Degree in International Relations from Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane and Science Po Paris. I am passionate about traveling and I am an amateur singer and guitar player.
