nashwa 1 / - Oct 30, 2017 #1gaining leadership skillsI believe that i have got leadership skills since my childhood as i used to be chosen during most of my academic years to lead a team representing our school in comprehensive school competitions. I was also a captain of my secondary school`s team of handball for two successive years. During years of elementary and preparatory school, i was chosen by elections to be a Secretary of the Student Union for more than five times electoral cycles. During years of university, I was interested in gathering my colleagues in volunteer working as we have achieved a lot of goals in helping poor patients. We succeeded in convincing many of our professors in faculty of medicine to share in that volunteer work by their own science and experience.In my work, I can manage leading my junior doctors and nursing team and encourage them to be decision makers under their senior`s supervision.I`d like to mention my role in voluntary foundation of Egyptian Blood Bank. I joined it since 2012 as a volunteer and by 2013, i was promoted to share leadership with Mr. Ahmed Zaghlol. I`m proud of managing such great foundation as we succeeded in helping thousands of patients throughout Egypt. We succeeded in building a database for blood donners which helps us to contact them for organizing the process of blood donation. We succeeded to do health educational campaigns to increase the awareness by benefits of blood donation. We are now a foundation with good reputation and well known among a wide sector of Egyptian people.I believe that i have the ability to communicate very well with my team members and clearly explain goals and tasks. I always insist to make every member aware about his role and i never get annoyed by their questions. In my work, i`m very well known by my ability to motivate others and create a positive environment in work.I`m wishing to earn more leadership skills from Chevening scholarship.
