Awo Abdulqadir is the CEO & Founder of DAQANI and is one of 5 Future Leaders participating in the programme. Awo is a second-generation immigrant, Somali born, Norwegian raised and residing. She has a BA (Hons) in Advertising and brand communications. At the age of 21 she launched her freelance career within design and marketing, she also became an active voice participating in the culture and diversity debate in Norway. One of the reasons Awo applied for the program was because she wanted structure.
“l’ve always had crazy ideas but I never realized any of them because of my lack for structure. The support I have received throughout the programme has helped me grow into a more secure and structured person.”
