Hera Arham is currently working towards a Master’s degree in Global Affairs & Human Security at the University of Baltimore. She is also a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa Honor Society, and has been working in the university’s finance department for the past year as an assistant to the Vice President of Administration and Finance. Hera has a strong interest in human security, specifically in South Asia. Her particular focus is on conflict between the various sects of Muslims in third world countries. She hopes to work closely with South Asian countries in the future and help create peaceful dialogue between groups dealing with intractable conflicts. Hera hopes that through these efforts she will increase the role of women who participate in peace negations and conflict prevention, as she strongly believes that women can play a vital role in the transition from war to peaceful development in conflict and post-conflict situations.
