Sahar Khan

Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) law | Social Entrepreneur | Stanford & Cambridge Alumna

Sahar is an American-born, Arabian-bred nomad of South Asian origin who has lived, studied and worked in the UK, USA, Oman, India and the Netherlands. Broadly, her three passions are women's empowerment, an energy-secure future and peace and justice in the world. She has had the pleasure of cycling through Stanford’s Main Quad where she co-founded Avicenna – the Stanford Journal on Muslim Affairs. Right out of The Farm, she took up a fellowship and continued cycling her way to work in the International City of Peace and Justice, The Hague. She was hoping to finally get a car but then went on to cycle some more to River Cam to row for her college in Cambridge - UK (Go Wolfson!!! #WCBC). Since, she has launched a California and India-based non-profit tech startup, Zariya, and is currently working at a boutique law firm on PPPs in the renewable energy space. Zariya is a 1-stop shop designed to help every victim of gender-based violence make her comeback as a happy survivor. Currently, Zariya is operating in India and brewing up a 'Sponsor-a-survivor' fund – tweet @SehrKhan_SK if you’re interested! When Sahar gets some downtime, she writes voraciously.
