WORDS FROM THE DIRECTOR OF SUSO ENGLAND JUNAYNA Al SHEINANI
Director - Junayna Al Sheibani
Bismillahi-Rahmaanir-Raheem [In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful.
Personally, When 2016 emerged with all its zest and abundance of fiery, compassionate young people, I asked myself many questions – ‘Where has my passion gone?’, ‘What is coming to the world?’ and other harrowing questions of the like.
From ISIS to Ebola, the compilation of terrible events that bombarded me had caused me to lose faith in humanity.
But on a more general note – and I say generally because all SUSOnians feel this way – SUSO made me realize that there were people who cared, people who were compassionate toward places they’ve never been, and people they’d never met. SUSO restored my faith.
SUSO is an adventure, and from being General Manager of the Tanzania Division which was my first.
Along the path to changing the world, one step at a time, I met spectacular souls who believed in me more than I believed in myself at that time, and SUSO possesses the magic to do such a priceless act. After every SUSO meeting, a feeling grew inside each of us, that we were family, that we were home.
SUSO teaches how to care and how to share, how to love and how to be dedicated to developing yourself and ideas. SUSO teaches one how to be enabling towards the people that need it the most and I am excited to say that I do not doubt that SUSO England Division will do no less than to represent all the values I have mentioned, and more.
SUSO England is yet another golden chance to be reborn every moment and to surround yourself with people with the same drive, passion, mission and vision as you.
- It’s never too late for change-
