Sustainability has always been one of her passions, and she had the opportunity to represent Nile University at the COP27 conference, where she discussed having effective sustainable practices for an improved world. After her higher technical studies, she worked as a junior teaching assistant and research assistant at Nile University.

  • What ignited your pursuit for SDGs especially the goals you believe in?
    I was working on projects related to climate change, sustainability, and the environment at the university. The spark came when I was given the opportunity to represent my university at the COP27 conference. It was then that I realized the importance of everything that is happening around us. I am addressing it based on its impact over time, not just the small part that I thought. And that the Sustainable Development Goals are bigger than being limited to climate change only.
