What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
I used to write posts on Facebook about gender stereotypes and toxic masculinity. I used to give speeches in mega-events about the same issues. I post videos about scholarships for women on my YouTube, and the first video for was about a girl who traveled the US, promoting her as a success story.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
Thanks to three Small Grants from Women Deliver, I was able to train 50 young feminist leaders on intersectional advocacy and they reached 1000 other young leaders communicating with each other through a Facebook group called Empower Women Leaders Hub. My team and I hosted one of the biggest conferences called the Women Leaders Conference gathering professors, government officials, parliament members, social media influencers, gender and climate activists, and young leaders to support the higher representation of women in the Egyptian Parliament.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
I am Youtuber with 125K+ subscribers and 150+ high quality Videos. I love creating videos and posting on social media. I love also networking with new people and attending events and retreats.
