Meriam Ben Hamza is from Casablanca, Morocco. She holds a BA in Finance and Accounting and a Master in Financial Communication from the Università Della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Lugano, Switzerland and is currently the Financial Policy Editor at a policy platform.
Her areas of interests are various but she most looks forward to the evolution of the social role of financial institutions as well as the development of impact investing, as she feels strongly about social entrepreneurship. Since she discovered the topic in the last years of her master studies, her fascination with it and firm belief in its role to fight economic and social inequalities never ceased to grow. Also a history addict in total agreement with the quote “History is who we are and why we are the way we are”, she enjoys learning and discovering new cultures through the history behind them.
As of late, she has been working on a platform to create synergies in the African social entrepreneurship scene.
