Born in Kurdistan region, she graduated as a civil engineer in 1990, and proceeded on to the Technical University of Denmark where she earned a Masters degree in genetics and microbiology.

Dr. Akrawi became a published author in 2003 and has since published several medical textbooks and academic articles. After researching the concept of victim psychology and the effects of various types of trauma on individuals' psychological health, her first novel entitled "Tara's Book", written in Danish, was published in Copenhagen. The book was translated to Norwegian in 2005, published in Oslo, and recognised by the Norwegian Cultural Council.
