Outside of her studies at Duke University, Annabel is delivering computer science tuition to state sector pupils to address educational inequalities. Not only did Annabel design her own curriculum, but she also secured funding from her US College to deliver the free educational outreach programme.

Most recently, with a view to inform state policy, Annabel has been working with a team of professors to research the privacy implications of C-19 tracing systems. Annabel’s definitely one to watch, with a self-developed microfinance programme and with support from the Gates Foundation, she has a plan to help lift women in Jordan out of poverty.
