Shawn Ahmed

Social Impact & Communications Specialist


Born to Bangladeshi parents who fled from war and embracing my identity as a gay Muslim, I am driven to tell stories that change the world and create a positive impact.

My passion for storytelling and social impact led to the creation of "The Uncultured Project," which became the most popular social media project for international charity at the time. This work allowed me to collaborate with major INGOs, including Save the Children, the Red Cross, and UNICEF, as well as prestigious institutions like Columbia University and the World Bank. My efforts have led to honours from The Webby Awards and an invitation to speak at The World Economic Forum in Davos.
