Tesnim was born in Switzerland and lived in Tunisia for twenty years. Fluent in English, French and Arabic, Tesnim utilised her language skills by volunteering with AfW in Chios as a translator. For almost 3 months, she tirelessly assisted the women and girls to articulate their needs to our psychologist, lawyers and doctors. Her CELTA certification also came in useful, where she taught the women advanced English.
Tesnim belongs to Team Cats, loves books, the sun and black coffee – sketo (as we say in Greek “no sugar”).
