RISE Profile: Mohamed Moumin

A native of Ourzazate, nineteen-year-old Mohamed Moumin is currently studying English at Agadir's Ibn Zohr University.

New to the city, Mohamed says "I have been wanting to meet other people from Agadir, and RISE has been a great place to do that. I have been making so many friends here!"

"RISE has also let me discover skills that I never knew I had - I’m realizing I could be a stronger leader. I want to improve my English and work as a translator one day. I enjoy volunteer work and I would like to translate for immigrants or refugees. I also want to study abroad and use what I learned from these experiences and apply them to my community in Morocco."

Good luck, Mohamed!
