Ms. Amira Hussein, Education Program Director at CARE International Foundation, recently visited AISE-M as the school's keynote speaker for its Model UN conference, AISMUN. Ms. Hussein has more than 18 years of experience working with NGOs and Civil Society organizations in Egypt, 12 of which were spent with international organizations such as CARE and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation on both local and regional levels. With a focus on poverty eradication, human rights and women’s rights, Ms. Hussein was inspired by a summer course on human rights in her third year at university, which included an internship at an NGO. “This summer was a life changing experience, it gave me insight into what I see myself doing in the future,” she shared during an interview with AISE student, Hana Zoheir. Hana wrote further about the inspiring encounter: “Starting her career at the bottom, Ms. Hussein knew she would encounter many challenges, and would need to be prepared. She got her Masters Degree in International Human Rights Law, and another one in Development Studies. When asked what she thought about our current theme, ‘Freedom from Fear,’ alongside the debate issues chosen by our presidents, she expressed that we can never be fully free from fear, but we can prepare to the best of our abilities. With Ms. Hussein’s words as inspiration, the AISMUN delegates had a productive, thought-provoking, and educational conference. While we did not exit the conference and enter a world free from fear, we did walk away with a better understanding of what we, as the future leaders of Egypt and the world, can do to help create a world of equality, justice, opportunity, and hope.”
