Sanat Karkat has an undying love for black Arabic coffee. Her refusal to dress up her coffee with cream, milk, or sugar is reflective of her blunt, high energy, and warm presence. She’s the one you want in your corner when you’re building an empire.
In 2021, after three years, Sanat was elected as the Vice President of Deir Debwan Charity Organization, an American nonprofit that serves to unite Deir Debwan diaspora in service of their village in Palestine. In her first term as the Public Affairs officer, Sanat launched a series of women’s events, the first ever in the organizations 40+ year history.
Sanat is certified in Fundraising Management by the Lily School of Philanthropy. She received her Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution in Divided Societies from King’s College London in the United Kingdom.
Sanat knows what it means to cater to a specific audience. Through her various positions in the Muslim events world, she was able to get a better grasp of the talents within our communities and the lack of opportunities provided to them.
In her role as CEO of UPROAR, she brings with her a plethora of professional connections, event savviness, and a sincere dedication to creating a more inclusive environment in her field. As a true New Yorker, she keeps it real and demands the same from those around her.
