Since attending the Achievement Summit as a student delegate in Kona in 2008, Jessica Ashooh has been appointed to an advising team with Dunia Frontier Consultants, providing strategic and management consulting services to the Ministry of Planning of the Kurdistan Regional Government in Northern Iraq. While still completing work on her doctorate in international relations at Oxford, Jessica travels frequently to Iraq to assist the ministry with its organizational and development strategy. Of the experience, Jessica says, “It is extremely rewarding and impactful work. The people of Northern Iraq have been so hospitable and friendly to us and they are lovely to work with. It is great to see our recommendations making a difference in the region’s development, and I love the time that I spend there.
