After I came back from Kyiv, academically equipped, I did not know where to start and how to start human rights career in Astana, a capital of Kazakhstan where at the time a number of civil society and human rights organizations was extremely low. Months of spending time in pursuit of a dream job, I found myself participating at the 'Human Rights Hackathon' organized by Erkindik Qanaty (EQ, Wings of Liberty). Since January 2018, I started working in EQ as a Project Manager(later as a Head of Programmes).
During my work in EQ, I also developed and implemented over ten projects which are primarily focused on human rights, anti discrimination and civic education. By producing high-quality project proposals on timely important topics and innovative approaches, I could secure more than 300 000 EUR throughout the period of time.
