Our proudest moment of the past year:
“When we saw the children we lifted out of poverty and helped save from child labor going to school and having access to good education and a better lifestyle. We knew then we left a huge impact in their lives.”

Biggest challenge from the past year:
“Expanding our project outside Egypt and marketing for the project globally. When we successfully did it and our project started impacting globally, that was the first time it happened in the history of Enactus Egypt, and we’re proud we were the team to take the lead.”

Team described in one word:
Persistent.

Get to Know Us:

Four years on our Enactus Egypt National Champion team, Dina serves as the Presentation Director. Dina says the greatest success she’s achieved has been stepping out of her comfort zone. “As an introvert, I tend to have a small circle of friends, and I like being alone. I used to have social anxiety and panic when I had to deal with new people,” says Dina. “Enactus taught me to face any challenges I come across, step out of my comfort zone and network.” Dina is an interior and furniture design major set to graduate in July 2019.

 

More about Dina:

  • What I’m reading: “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown
  • Theme song: “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana
  • Who inspires me: Amelia Earhart
  • Enactus in one word: Perseverance.
  • Best Enactus moment: “When we represented our team’s effort in the national competition and became the champions.”
  • In five years, I will be… “the first woman under the age of 30 in Egypt to have a LEADS certificate and professional licensing, as well as the first owner of a company in Egypt that works on blending two therapeutic approaches—art therapy and psychotherapy to treat people born with Autism and Down Syndrome.”

As a presentation team member, Yehya says his biggest challenge has been overcoming his social anxiety. “It wasn’t easy, but I always had my priorities set straight and refused to stay in my comfort zone,” says Yehya, a dentistry major scheduled to graduate in July 2019. “It took many hours’ worth of practice, and I became more confident in terms of presenting and found people I am comfortable to be around.” Yehya is looking forward to gaining exposure to different cultures, teams and entrepreneurs that have dreams just as big as his at Enactus World Cup this year.

 

More about Yehya:

  • What I’m reading: “Solace” by Nicci Gerrard
  • Theme song: “I’m Swimming” by Balance & Composure
