  • What ignited your pursuit for SDGs especially the goals you believe in?
    My pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly the ones I strongly believe in – no poverty, quality education, and peace, justice, and strong industry – was ignited by a deep sense of responsibility and a desire to make a positive impact on society and the world. No Poverty: I firmly believe that access to basic necessities and economic opportunities is a fundamental right. Witnessing the disparities in living standards and opportunities around the world, I was driven to contribute to efforts aimed at eradicating poverty, improving livelihoods, and ensuring that no one is left behind. Quality Education: Education is a powerful tool for transformation. I have personally experienced the transformative power of education, and this has fueled my commitment to ensuring that quality education is accessible to all. I believe it is the cornerstone of personal growth, societal progress, and the achievement of many other SDGs. Peace, Justice, and Strong Industry: A just and peaceful world is the foundation for sustainable development. I am deeply committed to promoting peace, justice, and strong industry because I understand that these factors are crucial for fostering an environment where individuals and communities can thrive and reach their full potential.
