Sara is a human/ rights defender and researcher in digital rights with a master’s degree in digital media from the University of Sussex.

She has been involved in several studies and work with UNESCO, New America Foundation, Media Diversity Institute, Association for Progressive Communication (APC), Global voices, and in Egypt with Massar for technology and Law and Motoon. Sara is involved in many human rights and charitable local groups and movements in Brighton, like Amnesty and Thousand for thousand.
