Prior to joining the team at FNF, Shayar worked at USAID - the US Agency for International Development in Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism projects. She graduated with honors from the American University in Madaba with a degree in Banking and Finance. Coming from a financial background, Shayar also found her passion for human rights and democracy – hence, she joined the Foundation for Freedom two years ago.
Formerly, Shayar was a Project Coordinator for the FNF Jordan office. Now, together with Al Hurriya Liberal Network (AHLN), she aims to be part of the drive to realise and live liberal values in the region.
