Get to Know Us:

Three and a half years after joining Enactus, the commitment Ines has to team development and her passion for the organization led her to become the President for her team. She discovered her passion for social enterprise and learned how to become more patient through her time with her team. “Our team is incredibly diverse which sometimes means that the difference in people’s opinion can lead to conflict,” says Ines, a Social Anthropology and Development major who graduated in July of 2018. “As Team Leader, I know the only way to avoid clashes is to listen to everyone’s ideas and encourage the team to work together.” Ines is most looking forward to meeting other teams and learning from the successes and challenges they have faced from their projects at Enactus World Cup this year.

  • What I’m reading: “No Lipstick in Lebanon” by Paul Timblick
  • Theme song: “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana
  • Who inspires me: Christiane Amanpour
  • Enactus in one word:  Dedication.
  • Best Enactus moment: “Seeing how proud Stephen Narh, our alumni mentor, was after we were announced as the National Champions this year.”
  • In five years, I will be… “working on establishing my own social enterprise in the UK working with unemployed ethnic minority women.”
