Ameri, Sareh

Managing Partner MENA Region, Resysta Building Material JLT, Founding President Soroptimist International Club Gulf-Dubai, UAE

Born and raised in the post-revolution and war troubled Iran, Sareh always had the dream of seeing the world and connecting to people from different cultural backgrounds. Following her passion she travelled to many countries and had the opportunity to experience the variety of countless cultures but also the enormous poverty and conflicts around the world. This clearly shaped her passion for improving the lives of women and children.

After beginning her university studies in Fine Arts in Tehran, she completed her bachelor's degree in Interior Design, received Summa Cum Laude from the American University in Dubai.

Her passion for social issues began in her home country and grew during university. At AUD, her alma mater, she was President of AIA, the school's International Aid Society. As such, she was invited to attend the 3rd & 4th annual Clinton Global Initiative University where she met the former American President himself. It has been reported that this experience gave her the ambition to become Iran's first female president.

She can also be proud of her humanitarian work with internally displaced persons in Afghanistan with the Norwegian Refugee Council. Notably, Sareh is Middle East Ambassador for Architecture for Humanity.

Seeing education as a key solution in fighting against poverty and animosity she started her international development activities by setting up a school in rural areas of Cameroon. This outstanding project was not only recognised by the local community but gave her more confidence to follow her vision of bridging the gap between nation through education and empowerment.

In her professional capacity, Sareh is currently Managing Partner at Resysta Middle East, an environmentally friendly company which is introducing groundbreaking building materials and innovative techniques.
