Maha Hafez

Maha M. Hafez, 23 years old, graduated from the British University in Egypt' 2010 - Computer Science Faculty. Currently, she is working at Module Designers as an administrator and the Professional Development Director at Rotaract Cairo Royal. Her emotions and feelings are almost exclusively expressed through music and singing, and it is one of her favorite things to do. She is currently a professional singer at the Cairo Opera House since 2011. When she sings, she always aims to share her emotions and connect with the audience. She started singing and writing her own lyrics when she was 8 years old, and her mother encouraged her ultimately along with her grandmother (may she rest in Peace). She believes that everyone has a unique fingerprint... So how about speaking your fingerprint out to the world and aloud?!! She believes that people are created to be more than just their physical existence, they are primarily refined souls. A person inflects and reflects to the people around them exactly who they are and instead of helping each other, people point to one another; there comes the spiral of life and only you can reach its focal point.

Esmail Habib

Global Technical Support Engineer at Microsoft formerly a Partner Technical Consultant, holding a Master in Computer Science - Quantum Cryptography - and a Master in Business Administration who is most passionate about learning and knowledge gaining, in different fields I think the most I am proud of are my lifetime goals that I am progressing in right now! I started my plan to educate, motivate, inspire, develop a new generation and letting them realize their full potential, by a group of young college students "Microsoft Student Partners." These young people who are going through, in my opinion an obsolete educational system and a depressing and degrading environment need to know how powerful they stand and as I believed they are the true power of this nation. I managed to be always beside them giving them guidance and the support they needed till they reached the first steps for their dreams, as entrepreneurs and very successful individuals whether as multinational company's employees or excellent freelancers, I like changing people's lives and see the impact of my effort in their future .
