Networking Essay - Chevening Scholarship QuestionChevening is looking for individuals with strong networking skills, who will engage with the Chevening community and influence and lead others in their chosen profession. Explain how you meet this requirement, using clear examples of your networking skills, and outline how you hope to use these skills in the future.
According to several international organizations such as the WESP (World Economic Situations), IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank, Egypt is a developing economy with a gross national income per capita in the "Lower to Middle Income".
What that essentially means is that there is a lot of people in Egypt who need help. As a woman that was born in Egypt, grew up in Egypt, educated in Egypt, worked in Egypt, I cannot be indifferent to the suffering of so many in my country.
To that affect, I have joined a charity that essentially organizes food packaging, distribution to the most impoverished in the country who, more often than not, are in remote areas very difficult to access and basically rely on the very resilient work from those charities for their basic necessities (Food, water and shelter).
And this is where I had to use my network in order to help the distributions process, I instinctively got in touch with co-workers, friends and family members, to help out and reach out as many people as possible. Needless to say, that seeing the expression of gratitude and smiles on their faces is a memory I will cherish for much of my life.
Professional life has also another example. When I was newly hired I was in Agency Services department and as per the branch I am working in was recently opened, so I was charged by other functions related not only to my department, but also to many different departments so that gave me the opportunity to build a very strong network with almost all the company's departments.
When the branch recorded a remarkable progress, I have requested the higher management to hire new employees to whom I became the first support tool as I was directing them to the responsible and concerned person in every issue they face according to my network, experience and knowledge.
That was honor and pleasure to lead and support others in their personal and professional life. I am willing and committed that I will never save an effort to enrich my networking, experience and knowledge and transfer them to improve my community where I live and to help thousands of people.
