Country of origin: Sudan
Date started with Soliya: 2018
Education and field of work: I am a corporate trainer, intercultural facilitator, and geophysicist. I work in global education and development focusing on 21st-century skills, inclusive education, social enterprise, and peace-building. I have a Bachelor Honors degree in Geophysics and diverse professional certificates in social sciences.
One accomplishment you're proud of: I am proud of being able to inspire many groups of young people, teachers, and leaders to act responsibly and change the way people think and act as well as help them to communicate better in a cross-cultural environment. Indeed, I had the honor to lead and coach the Sudanese team that won the gold medal during the African Voice Debating Championship 2020.
What about Soliya inspires/motivates you to be involved? Soliya is helping me to explore how to create integrated societies. It allows me to help the young generation to develop their intercultural competencies and leadership skills. Soliya supports me to develop and promote mutual understanding in multi-national and diverse ethnic and religious groups.
