Biography

Nourhan graduated from the Faculty of Education at Ain Shams University. She believes that all children deserve love, care, and protection. She has experience with children through her work as a teacher. In observing children’s and teachers’ problems, she noticed that there is not enough concern nor awareness for children’s psychological needs or character building skills. Her mission is bi-fold: to educate a new young generation who has different skills, and to enable teachers and parents to have healthy relationships with their students and children. She has volunteered in civil development organizations, where she has been able to hone her skills. She is always cheerful and willing to assist with any task. She would like to get involved in a real work environment, which will allow her to gain more experience as it will require her to face different challenges and to be reactive. This will help shape her career as a changemaker. Nourhan believes that studying child psychology, volunteering in different NGOs, and working as psycho support facilitator will help her achieve her ultimate goal. Nourhan would like to work with an NGO that works with and has a positive impact on children.
