First, what is Merit360?
Merit360 is set to have young global citizens from all over the world come together to attempt to tackle the worlds most pressing issues. Under the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals, participants will be working on an action plan that will be presented to the United Nations on September 9th 2016 and afterwards, be implemented collaboratively across the world to make positive change.
My name is Ghali Jorio, I am from Morocco and I am currently studying at the African leadership academy (ALA) in Johannesburg. I was born in Morocco in the 10th September 1998, I have studied in a Moroccan school before joining on September 2015 the African Leadership Academy in South, an institution that aim to develop the future African leaders. Before coming to ALA, I have founded the first Moroccan NGO created only by teenagers that had a really big impact in my community such as it has helped more than 2500 people in many areas. Now at ALA, I am engaged in many activities, I am working with a student enterprise, I have founded a social entrepreneurship club, I am in the international relation council and I am also enjoying the ALA curriculum that is based on leadership and entrepreneurship. This was a brief summary about myself.
I am so passionate about the UN sustainable development and I really want to have a global impact in our world and this what made me want to join this program. I have chosen to represent the goal number 17: Partnership for the goals since I strongly believe that if the cooperation and the partnership between all the part of our society increase and we share all the same vision and objectives, Our world will be better!
Finally, I would like to emphasize that contributing to the event and my flight you will well invest in a youth who has the potential to make a difference, who will become an African leader and by attending this event, he will reach higher objectives.
