Ayat Mohamed Elsayed

Egypt

Ayat has a degree in International Economics from Helwan University in Cairo. She enjoys analyzing different country’s economic models and challenges in order to try and come up with solutions. She describes herself as a strong girl who loves adventure, helping people, swimming and her modeling job. The latter she particularly enjoys, as it affords her the opportunity to influence what young women wear. She is a brand ambassador for Pixi Shoes and has walked various runways in her country.

She wants to teach young women the meaning of humanity so that there is a whole generation that is enlightened enough to pass on the message. For her, the word humanity is not only a monopoly for Africa but on the whole world needs to embrace the principle. “I see humanity in a different concept from others and this makes me distinct. For me, it means peace, justice and helping others. Humanity does not know and does not differentiate between religions and colors. It is the soul of man,” she expands.

Should she win, she will take the money and us it to spread the message of humanity via campaigns on every possible platform: television, social media and other traditional media outlets.

She feels that people need to understand that everyone has the right to respect, and may not be treated in any other way, except in a human one.
