Meet Plan International Global Youth Advisory Panel (GYAP) member Alshaimaa, aged 21, from Egypt.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about working with children and youth on the issues we are interested in and care about such as gender, leadership and decision making.
What do you enjoy about being on GYAP?
I enjoy being a member of the GYAP because I have the opportunity to think in different ways and see the points of views of the rest of the members. We share experiences and success stories and help each other to face and overcome challenges.
Why is GYAP important?
GYAP is important because as young people we can encourage our communities and the world to develop with the principles of humanity and equality, rather than discriminating due to race or gender. I believe we can really achieve this through the council.
