  • A brief bio:
    Hello My name is Salma Hussien Elsherbiny, and I am from city Mansoura. Currently, I am studying for a bachelor’s degree in Dentistry at Mansoura University. I am quite enthusiastic about my participation in the 2030 Leaders Program for the current year. I hope that this program will add to my personal growth and enhance my leadership skills and other skills. Moreover, I wish to be a valuable contribution to this program. I am studying as a dental student at the Faculty of Dentistry, Mansoura University, in my second year of study. Additionally, I am creating content on social media platforms. I have actively engaged in many student activities inside my college, as well as volunteered at different organizations and charities such as Resala Charity, Life Makers, Make a Move, Egyptian Red Crescent. Also I have taken part in the Ministry of Planning’s Ambassador initiative and sustainable development goals.

  • What ignited your pursuit for SDGs especially the goals you believe in?
    I am a social media content creator, and my first goal in sharing my content was to share knowledge and raise awareness among the young about the importance of education, and I don’t just mean education at school or college, but also self-learning. I always encourage them to develop their skills and improve their qualifications in order to be effective in their communities. And when I learnt about the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda, I wanted to share this information right away, and my goal is to educate and inform a large number of youth about the SDGs.
  • Please share your biggest wins as an SDGs advocate
    Everything begins with the fact that I am a part of the Be Ambassador Initiative, from which I was chosen out of 5000 participants. My education on the sustainable development goals and the vision for 2030 has taken up approximately two months of my time. besides to all of these objectives, I have a significant interest in climate change, and the reason for this is that I have observed a significant change in the climate of both my city and my country over the course of the past several years. As a result, I began to broaden the scope of my reading in an effort to raise my level of awareness regarding this issue. I began my voyage of learning by conducting searches on Google and YouTube. I watched hundreds of videos on YouTube that discuss climate change and the ways in which it might disrupt and damage our lives. I have come to understand that the natural changes in the environment are not the primary driver of climate change; rather, the impacts of humans have a much greater impact. The next step has arrived, and now is the time for the tot training. After I finished the exam for the BE Ambassador Initiative, I became eligible to take it. We spent about a week  getting more advanced information on sustainable development goals and the vision for 2030. Once I completed this program and gained a lot of experience and a substantial amount of information in the fields of sustainable development goals and a variety of other topics. I’ve also developed a lot of connections with people I’ve met along the way, and it turns out that many of us have similar passions and hobbies. After that, I enrolled in a program called Empower 2030 Leaders, which teaches us primarily about sustainable development goals, climate change, and a variety of other sustainable subjects. After going through more than 4000 applicants, I reached my choice. We spent three days learning about really important themes, meeting a lot of great speakers, and socializing with amazing individuals about topics such as leadership and teamwork. We spent our time in Alexandria learning about topics such as sustainability and leadership. I discovered how to make my day-to-day existence more sustainable, I discovered how to preserve my planet by seemingly insignificant activities, and I discovered that my ultimate objective, after I have gained this knowledge, is to share it with the rest of the world. I was taught the skills necessary to build a successful group. I have learnt how to be tolerant of individuals of different cultures and types, but the most important thing that I have learned is how to be an effective leader in my community. I am working very hard to share everything that I have learned to the rest of the world.
