Senior Facilitator; Facilitation Fellow, Fall 2019
Country of origin: Egypt
Date started with Soliya: 2015
Field of work: I have a Bachelor's degree in religious and cultural affairs. For the past 3 years, I've worked as a facilitator, debate trainer, and translator (English-Arabic). I recently founded my own start-up, African Voice, that aims to connect young people across Africa to each other and to the world to exchange cultures and develop their debating and public speaking skills. (I was inspired by Soliya to run this program).
One accomplishment you're proud of: I'm proud of and grateful for being a facilitator. It's the art of making things easier on all levels. It made my life more simple and comfortable. I hope everyone would be able to facilitate their own lives.
What about Soliya inspires/motivates you to be involved? I came to Soliya as a participant. I was inspired by what we did during the semester, and I decided to take part in this great work.
What can you be found doing when not working/facilitating/training? Running, reading, and watching debates (I'm a debate addict).
Favorite food: Whatever food I eat with my mom is my favorite one.
