Dalila Hussein

I was born and raised in Cairo, and earned my undergraduate degree from Cairo University with a major in Statistics and minor in Economics. My perception of the world largely expanded in university where I was invested in extracurricular activities and the civic society, growing a passion for development and economic empowerment. I was fortunate to earn a fully funded scholarship for a study abroad year at the University of Chicago, learning about the various applications of statistics, behavioral economics, and policy analysis. I also hold a degree in Liberal arts and Sciences from Cairo Initiative for Liberal Arts and Sciences, Cairo, Egypt. Upon graduation, I assumed various professional roles from market research, quantitative data analysis, project management, monitoring and evaluation, and livelihoods coordination. My pursuits are driven by the passion for poverty alleviation through economic empowerment, gender equality, and program evaluation.
