I highly recommend Yasmina’s Women Empowerment Coaching program. I completed the Early Career Development track. Her enthusiasm, drive, and encouragement is inspiring. Her approach when coaching combines the perfect mix of nurturing support as well as constructive criticism to ensure the best results for her clients. Thanks to our weekly meetings and the online resources Yasmina provided, I feel much more confident in my personal and professional skills.

If you are a caregiver like me, with Yasmina Benslimane you will learn how to finally invest in yourself. She will push you towards achieving this specific goal. Her understanding goes beyond knowledge. The coaching program offers you tools and best practices for you to manifest your advocacy and professional career. Yasmina offers genuine and authentic support, a well structured program that entails all the necessary. She is just superb, uncompromising and a stellar personality. On top of everything else. A strong force of nature. To say the least! 😉 I strongly recommend for you too to hop on Yasmina’s coaching journey.

It was a privilege and an honor to be coached by Yasmina! Even though I have an established career, she was able to push me deeper and help me grow in so many ways. She is extremely passionate about women’s empowerment and goes above and beyond to support her clients. She is a wealth of knowledge and helps clients translate that knowledge into tangible action. I would highly recommend working with Yasmina! It was truly a transformative experience.

Ms. Benslimane was chosen to collaborate in this program due to her high standards and values, her professionalism and dedication. At the same time, she has demonstrated mastery of the group and the ability to generate empathy and convey knowledge.

Yasmina worked diligently to interview migrants from various countries in Africa whose final destination was either Central or North America.Yasmina was thorough, self-motivated and warm during her interviews and diligent in her note taking and preparation of the biographies. She was a valuable member of the research team and I would recommend her to any position where her many talents could be put to good use.

Yasmina was a dedicated and meticulous student who demonstrated continual growth. She had an excellent record in working on different projects during her studies at UPEACE. Throughout the year, Yasmina also demonstrated strong leadership and multicultural skills. She was an active member of the Students Council at UPEACE and was chosen by her peers as the representative for her programme. Based on my interactions and academic engagements with Yasmina, I have no hesitation in strongly recommending her for further academic and professional opportunities. I am confident that she will succeed.

Yasmina Benslimane is one of our finest seniors this year; she is at the centre of an enthusiastic and high achieving group of students. I have always found her written work to be thoughtful and engaging, but, in her latest essays, she is truly excelling in displaying her fine analytical abilities. One of the most exciting aspects about Yasmina’s approach to studying is her keenness and ability to develop unexpected connections. She is an original thinker and an ambitious, self- driven individual. She has written a number of research essays on issues related to international security and human rights, particularly women’s rights. She has also developed an interest and profile in Middle East and North African studies, in particular related to issues of counter- terrorism and human rights, the rights of refugees.

Benslimane speaks openly about her interest in politics, calling it part of the “struggle for a better world.” Indeed, although she speaks with the measured fluidity of a diplomat, her commitment and enthusiasm feel genuine. Her inclination to engage her critics in discussions of gender issues is, in itself, formidable; but she is also a rare person with the linguistic dexterity to do so. Born in Morocco, she grew up speaking Moroccan Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and French; her undergraduate and postgraduate coursework have been in Spain and Costa Rica; and she spoke to Morocco World News in her flawless English.
