To read more about her journey with her own words:

I am Sabekun Naher, I used to work with different NGO agencies in the Camp, I’m a motivational speaker at the Rohingya Human Rights Network.

The Rohingya Capacity-Building Project (RCBP) aims to enhance the capabilities of members of the Rohingya Students Network (RSN) while promoting gender equality and political empowerment within the Rohingya community. The project's activities, scheduled from May to October 2023, include organizing capacity-building training for 15 permanent RSN members, with a focus on topics such as project management, leadership skills, research methodologies, professional writing, effective advocacy, human rights education, civic education, women's rights, gender-based violence, the history of Rohingya and Myanmar, international justice processes for Rohingya, journalism, and documenting human rights violations.

As an RCBP member, I have gained valuable knowledge and skill development. The most significant takeaways for me have been project management, leadership skills, research methodologies, and professional writing. While many organizations offer various training programs in the camp, RCBP's unique focus on professional writing and leadership skills has been transformative for me. These skills are pivotal in my role as a Rohingya activist, enabling me to effectively communicate our cause through writing.

Since my childhood, I have aspired to be a Rohingya activist and advocate for my community's international recognition. Witnessing my community's enduring human rights violations in Myanmar fueled my determination. My current dream is for our community to obtain reparations and the right to return to our motherland with full citizenship and dignity, in alignment with our community's wishes. Each morning on my way to work, I am reminded of the pain in my grandmothers' and grandfather's eyes as they long for our homeland. Learning through RCBP has empowered me to work towards realizing this dream and supporting my community.
