“Hi my name is Ameni and I am here to gladly share with you a little bit about myself. Some of you might wonder why I haven’t mentioned my age, well let’s just say that since I got to my twenties I have been feeling very old and that whatever I do is never enough to satisfy my ambitions and dreams.
This year, right after I got my Bachelor degree in Management I have decided to look for a job. A few weeks later, I applied as a Fellow at IIDebate on a project called “Youth Talk”.
I’ve only been here for a little less than 2 months, and I can already tell that some of the staff members are very diligent, inspiring, and extremely ambitious, especially Iyed! He has the biggest heart and he is very respectful. He is also one of the most qualified, intelligent people I have ever met. I really appreciate the fact that I can always ask him for help and he doesn’t feel bothered. He is my ray of sunshine in the office.
Most of you don’t know me yet, but I love to laugh and I am a very positive and optimistic person. When I am not working, I enjoy good books, watching movies and soccer. However, what I enjoy most and consider as a hobby is Photography, especially portrait photography. Once you get to know me, you will realize that I am such a hardworking and determined person. I believe that I have a lot of potential and I wish to achieve as many things as possible in life which sometimes makes me feel despondent and always wanting to do more.
Nevertheless, no matter how stressful and intense it might get at work, I am always that bundle of energy and joy. I know that it can get annoying sometimes, but I make it my daily goal to spread good vibes everywhere I go.
By now you might wonder, what inspires me to be active in Civil Society and work at an NGO? Well, during the Jasmine Revolution I had the chance to really understand the main issues that we faced in Tunisia. I then realized that I needed to be part of the change, and I have been very active and making various contributions to help and develop my community and my country.
To Conclude, Freedom is extremely important and essential, especially the Freedom of expression and speech. And if I were to give young people everywhere a piece of advice is to “just be yourselves and to do what your heart truly desires, for the world will conspire to help you fulfill it. Just do you!”
At the end, this is me and I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about my life adventure.”
