About Me

It’s Ibrahim a Global Citizen, blessed to be born in Afrika, specifically Egypt, Always proudly being "HUMAN, AFRIKAN, PHARAOH, EGYPTIAN" 🌍

My great-grandmother is NEFERTITI, and My great-grandfather is RAMESSES II 𓂀☥

A bit about me: rather than having a pharaoh royal bloodline? Just ask me! I’m outgoing, always up for an adventure, and happy to offer my diverse skills (both personal and business-related) in any way I can. Think delicious Egyptian cooking, insightful stories, or a helping hand with a project.

If you're looking for a fun and enthusiastic friend, or even just someone to explore the city with, I'd love to hear from you!

Let's not forget about the most important thing too as well: As CS, I'm looking for CSs who values deep connections and friendship above all else. This is the most important thing I am looking to get when I meet someone, it’s not at all to find a place to sleep! It’s way way far from that.

Ultimately, I'm seeking a host who values meaningful connections and cultural exchange. Friendship is a top priority for me when traveling.

About my daily mission:

The ACTUAL DEVELOPMENT in underprivileged communities requires the COMMUNITY PEOPLE themselves to lead the way. Unexpectedly, conventional outside aid and funds often hinder the community's sustainable development. With a burning desire and a clear vision, I empower people to build and develop sustainable communities through a three-fold approach: Design, Launch, and Scale-up social initiatives with sustainable-social goals, using human-community-centred techniques.

With over twelve years of experience in the sustainable development field and project management, I led 170+ colleagues, trained 20,000+ youth with 300+ social impact projects launched, and achieved 600+ hours in social business consultation.

My own personal vision is to have a better society where communities are being developed independently. Moreover, I intended to achieve that through my mission of upgrading the global learning system by bonding it with social innovation, entrepreneurship concepts and techniques. I set a goal and decided to empower young people to develop their communities and achieve sustainable development goals through social entrepreneurship and launching sustainable social enterprises.

Aiming high is great, but staying grounded is greater. Therefore, I am rolling up my sleeves every day to work on my abilities and expertise to fulfil my aspirations. At the moment, I am a Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship Advisor, Ecosystem Builder, Social Entrepreneurship Trainer, UN SDGs Advocate, Social Business Consultant, Sustainable Development Author, and Part-Time Social Entrepreneur. my vision, mission, goals, passion, and professions, all together are the secret sauce that builds me into what I am known for as a "Social & People Development Architect."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A lot about me here, http://bit.ly/IbrahimFathyZalat

I had a deep passion for social business, management, community development, and social entrepreneurship throughout my childhood, without figuring it out. Consequently, I registered to take a bachelor’s degree in Science “Computer Science Minor” which I could not find myself in, unusually I made my decision to chase my real gifts and get my hands dirty.

On my way to the third year at the Science School, I planned it was the time to reconstruct, thus beginning from nothing, enrolled in a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration “BBA”, which was the watershed of my life.
