Curator of the Global Shapers Alexandria Hub, Global Shapers Community Alexandria Hub
Nada is a teaching assistant in Alexandria University, as well as, a part-time researcher in a public strategy and government relations firm called N Gage Consulting. Prior to this, she had participated in a series of internships and trainings, including in El-Ahram Center for Strategic Studies and the AUC research academy, which helped inform her political knowledge.
To quench her passion for development and concrete social impact, she has sought the assimilation to multiple local, regional and international organizations and programs including; Banlastic Egypt, the Common Futures Conversation by Chatham house, the Climate Reality Leadership Corps and the GSC.
By virtue of living in a coastal city susceptible to being submerged by 2050, Climate Change advocacy occupies a huge part of her life. So far, she had facilitated over 20 environmental workshops in public and private institutions, undertook beach clean ups; and led several projects about the cascading impact of climate change; the last of which was under the auspices of the British Council and in collaboration with UKYCC where a 30 hour training about the gendered impacts of climate change was offered to 60 young leaders from Egypt and the UK.
As a result of her efforts, she has been assigned as the first Egyptian country mentor by the African Climate Reality Project for the year (2022-2023) and has most recently been chosen to take part in the Max Thabiso Edkins Climate Ambassador Program that is offered by GYCN: an initiative of the Y2Y Community of young professionals at the World Bank Group, in collaboration with Connect4Climate.
She holds a B.A. in political science, is fluent in English and Arabic; and has an intermediate fluency in Spanish.
