With Ekhlas Ahmed
Today’s Daughter of Change, Ekhlas Ahmed, is a force to be reckoned with. She is a trailblazer, a shining light, and a beautiful human.
Forced to flee the outbreak of civil war in Sudan with her mother, father, and three younger brothers in 2004, Ekhlas and her family were resettled in Portland, Maine. Since then, Ekhlas has earned her bachelor’s degree in International Relations and a master’s degree in Education from the University of Southern Maine with hopes of helping resettle other refugees – and she is doing just that.
Ekhlas is the Founder and Executive Director of Chance to Advance, also known as CTA, which is dedicated to uplifting the voices of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers through storytelling to break down barriers for a more inclusive, connected, and educated world.
