El mehdi Benmoussa -BA Student

Since i was a child, i have always believed to dream big. My ambition was to embrace new challenges and seeking change in every single opportunity I seize.I have chosen a British Education system in the heart of Morocco to let my creativity flows and expand the scope of my knowledge to reach an international dimension. As I am very passionate about social work, I was so motivated to take part of the JLM association at SIST .In my second year, I was selected to be the leader of SIST JLM team to manage social projects. I was really thrilled to take the lead of this new journey. Holding such as position enables me to build an expertise in managing projects, interacting with different stakeholders and essentially solving problems. I have turned what I have learned into reality and I have started to develop my soft skills as well. Studying at SIST also allows me to gain business insights that I m adopting now as I m working part-time. Managing more than four social projects taught me that what is impossible exists only in one’s mind. My advice to all young people is to be persistent.
