Amera is a Human Resources Director and a Life Coach. She works within the financial services sector in London, UK, predominantly supporting senior leaders with strategic transformational projects.

Amera has travelled across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America for workshops and to deliver presentations and training programs. Her passion is to help people design the life and career of their dreams, as they define them.

Amera is originally from Yemen and has been personally impacted by the tension and violence in the region over the years. She joined Seeds of Peace in 2009 and was an active member of the UK Steering Committee working on fundraising and raising awareness in the UK.

In the summer of 2013, following a trip to Israel, Palestine, and Jordan and seeing some of the challenges faced by people in the region, Amera visited the Seeds of Peace International Camp in Maine. She witnessed first-hand the extraordinary scenes of hundreds of young people coming together in a place far away from home. This was a very powerful experience which reinforced the importance of Seeds of Peace’s work, inspiring her to get more involved.

Amera holds a Master of Human Resources Management and is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
