Asiya Mohammed

As a child, Asiya S. Mohammed was always passionate about helping others less fortunate than her. This led her to work with UNICEF, USAID and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where she represented Trinidad and Tobago at the United Nations General Assembly on issues related to gender, human rights, and peace and security. In 2014, she founded Conflict Women, Ltd., a social business which provides free training and a monthly income to survivors of domestic and sexual violence in exchange for their hand crafted jewelry. To date Conflict Women has won the Idea2Innovation competition and the 1776 Challenge Cup Caribbean, and was selected as a grant recipient by PSI Caribbean.

Asiya Mohammed is a graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science and Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. She was also a recipient for the Young Female Leader Award in 2016 by the Association of Female Executives of Trinidad and Tobago and continues to persist despite the challenges she encounters on the entrepreneurial journey.

In her downtime, Asiya enjoys meditation, boats, yoga and nature.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPortofSpain, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPortofSpain event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx. Learn more about TEDx
