Nilufar Ebrahim is one of the 176 passengers and crew who have lost their lives in the crash of Ukraine Airlines Flight 752 two years ago having lost previously.
Nilufar, a master of industrial and business psychology, and her husband, Saeed Tahmasebi Hademasadi, were among those killed when a passenger plane was hit by an Iranian surface-to-air missile shortly after taking off from Tehran on January 8, 2020. The couple has returned home to London to start their life together after they celebrate their wedding anniversary in the Iranian capital just a few weeks earlier. Nilufar is scheduled to attend her graduation ceremony next week. The family continues to support those who lost their lives as active members of the PS752 Aviation Victims’ Families Association.
To continue Nilufar’s legacy, the Nilufar-Ebrahim Scholarship, in memory of the victims of PS752, was established by his family to enable passionate students to pursue their ambitions to make a difference in the world.
