I was selected as an Entrepreneur a few months after the Egyptian Revolution, and I wanted to make an impact in my country. Endeavor provided the platform that enabled me to achieve my goals. I am still involved because the Endeavor experience has shaped who I am today and still pushes me to make an impact, especially after I joined the local board and started another company.
I enjoy the sense of belonging I get with such a global organization and the opportunities to meet with entrepreneurs across the globe who are all on a mission to make the world a better place. I joined the Endeavor board in Egypt to give back and decided to launch a new venture after graduating this year from Harvard. I could not have achieved this without the support of this inspirational network.
Being in the network means that I will always be challenged and inspired to keep raising the bar higher and to make a bigger impact whenever I have the chance. I hope to see more entrepreneurs reshaping the world and making it a safer and better place, whether it is through their companies or through public offices. Wouldn’t it be great to see future world leaders and presidents as Endeavor Entrepreneurs?
