Habiba Ali


Dutch by nationality, Somali by roots, but both at heart Habiba Ali is someone who learned to embrace her intersectional identity. She is an advocate for authenticity as she is a firm believer that progression is achieved by leading with love and genuinity, whether this is in one’s speech, one’s actions or in one’s interactions.

As a Masters student in International Relations and International Security she tends to focus on decoloniality. She is passionate about empowering others. Habiba volunteered as a resilience peer-counselor during trainings regarding refugee children at Humanitas Groningen, was the former president of Black Ladies of Groningen, and currently works parttime as a Program Manager at Wrokko. She hopes to (continue to) build bridges; bridges between communities, theory and practice, and visions and realities.
