Bio: 
My name is Nada Farid, I’ve turned 24 on the 4th of May. I’ve finished high school by the age of 16 at Dr. Nermien Ismail International School and enrolled to The English Department of The Faculty of Woman Ain-Shams University. I’ve always been interested in learning many different things & doing everything; as a child I played different sports like: taekwondo, basketball, swimming, tennis & football, also musical instruments like: guitar, drums & key-board. I’ve spent 4 years in collage and during that time I’ve worked in different places. I’ve been working since I was 16. First job was at a call center working on a project called “Superpages”, I enjoyed it very much because I really wanted to work and it was a new and different environment to what I’m usually used to, even though it was long shifts and it was a difficult job (Telesales or Telemarketing). Then I worked at Berlitz Language Center in HR as a trainee since at that time I was still in collage & didn’t have a degree. I learned a lot & enjoyed working in HR. the reason why I had to leave these jobs was usually exams season. After graduating I worked at Vodafone UK for a year and a half, which taught me a lot about bills and technical issues. Working in call centers you meet all different kinds of people and due to its nature people come and go frequently, so it was making friends fast & finding out what you have in common with every person even if it looks like they are completely different than you. I’ve also worked as an English teacher at Sheraton Heliopolis School for 5 month, I worked with primary stage children ages between (6 – 14). That was a completely different experience; working with children & classes that include about 30 child. It is a huge responsibility and needs a lot of energy & patience. Once you get to know the children you start to see their individual characters & how each one needs to be treated to try to get the best out of them. Since the 1st of February 2015 till now I am working at a pharmaceutical company in the HR department as an HR coordinator. Taking part in both worlds; voluntary & corporate life. I am good at both but I see myself more working voluntary jobs, I am more comfortable in that environment. It feels like a better use of my time and it really shows you that it’s not just one way, it’s give and take. And I’d like to continue working in voluntary field rather than corporate life. I’ll do my best to try and find more programs like this one. The reason why I want to join the program & why I believe I’ll be suitable for it; I’ve had a lot of experience in these fields and I believe this will also add much more to that & it will teach me many things that I might not have the opportunity to learn here. I believe that a combination of my skills, experience, and knowledge suits your expectation. I feel the need to grow with you, enriching my culture, language and learning from people that are working in the same fields. My current manager once told me that one of the reasons he hired me is that I’m willing to learn and teach myself anything in order to improve myself to reach their criteria. That was due to a situation during the interview period he asked me if I was good at excel sheets and I told him I’ve worked with them before but it has been a long time since. But when I left I researched and watched videos and experimented in order to prove myself in the next interview I like being in new & different cultures & being out of my comfort zone, I get familiar with people easily. I like learning about new cultures and new languages; I know a little Hindi, Turkish, Korean and French. It has always been my dream applying for an opportunity like this. And when my friend saw the post she sent it and said she immediately thought of me, this is exactly what I’ve been searching for & it would be a great honor for me to be able to join you team. I know I’ll do my best and give it my all.
Volunteering Experience: 
I’ve been involved with charities since I was in school. We used to visit orphanages & help the needy. During high school I was able to join a charity organization called “Resala” or The Message; it’s very big now & all over the country. Their activities included many programs throughout the week like; reading to the blind, cleaning and distributing donated clothes, measuring and bagging food (beans, rice, and macaroni….etc.), donating blood, taking orphans out for a trip. Every Friday we would visit a different place after doing some research about it on what their needs are, if it is food supply, furniture, electronic devices like; washing machines, cooker, refrigerator, heater…..etc. building a home / roof, a pipe line for running water. We would load everything on the trucks then separate into groups to distribute everything depending on their needs. I’ve also been involved with “Al Nour Wal Amal” organization or “Light & Hope”. This is a quote from their website to explain what they do (The primary aim of Al Nour Wal Amal Association is to fulfill the rights of blind girls and women by providing them with free education, literacy programs, vocational training and job opportunities in order to develop their potentialities and their special abilities such as musical talents, to ensure their physical and psychological health and to allow them to develop their own identities and become self-dependent integrated members of the society. ). I volunteered their and I gave the girls private English lessons to help them study, the girls are very talented & they have so much potential & I enjoyed working with them a lot. They actually taught me how to read braille language, but I wasn’t very good.
