What inspires you?

Reading is what inspires me. Reading is absolutely the thing I enjoy the most in my life. It expands my knowledge and stimulates my imagination. Reading can take me back into history and even give me an insight into the future. Every time I read a story I feel like I added another experience to my life, as if I lived in someone else’s life. Reading about other people’s success stories give me a great inspiration and encourages me to achieve my dreams.

Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

Education is an issue that matters to me a lot. I believe education is what builds our future. It’s one of the most important investments a country can make. It is a cornerstone of a nation’s prosperity. I became aware after leaving my old school and attending a new one and I saw the difference between them and understood the importance of education and what a great role it contributes in building one’s personality, also how education can change a person’s life and change his future to a brighter one.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

I believe a good leader is someone who inspires others to achieve their goals and leads them to find their own treasure within themselves. Someone who knows the way to success but doesn't tell you where it is, rather guide you to find it yourself. He is someone who tells you what to do but not how to do it.

Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already?

TakingITGlobal does help me achieve some of my goals. It helps me engage in programs and collaborate with people around the world. I also learned a lot about different societies and different cultures. I was part of the culture connect program, it was very useful and fun, and I have gained a lot through this experience. It also gives me the opportunity to make my voice heard and share my ideas with others. Like the Adobe Youth Voices program which gave me a lot of opportunities and gave me the chance to make new friends from different countries around the world.
