marketing and communication Specialist - Forsa Program
We first met Reda when he joined the Forsa Program as a student. He had a very clear direction in mind, studying for a vocational high school diploma for five years before joining the Workers University, and later equating his certificate at Cairo University to graduate as a Quality Engineer. He attended a number of intensive courses and workshops over the years that helped him expand his skills across a variety of fields. Reda also took on a number of different jobs — working at a bakery shop, as a security guard, as a customer service operator, an inventory allocation coordinator for a major retailer, and a furniture sales executive — growing with each new appointment.
Throughout this time, Reda also engaged in a lot of volunteer work and community development activities, and gained recognition from the UN’s Egypt Mission in 2015 for being one of three leading examples in the field. Within Wataneya, he started out as a public relations volunteer, but soon began taking on more responsibilities and was hired to manage the organization’s online presence, taking charge of its website, as well as social media pages and campaigns. He is also often the creative and executive mind behind Wataneya’s promotional material, having taught himself video editing and graphic design. At the moment, he also owns a small restaurant.
