He began by handing out medical kits to members in his community and has since organized trips to Jamaica and India and served over 1,100 individuals. As a social entrepreneur, Amal created an international network of more than 300 official members through 10 high schools, two universities, humanitarian organizations, and multi-national corporations to innovate humanitarian operations.
However, through Amal’s work in the healthcare needs through his non-profit does not mean that Amal would like to be in the medical field. Amal told me that when he was a young boy he dreamed to be a pediatrician, but he stated that he is undecided on what career path he would like to take.
From his experience of starting and growing his own non-profit has made is think to go into business and become an entrepreneur. Before winning his award, Amal was unfamiliar with 21st Century Leaders. He said he had an fantastic experience with everyone from the new connections he made with professionals and his peers and the networking. Outside of First Aid for All, Amal likes to hang out like any ordinary teenager would like to do; after all being a businessman is a lot of work. All in all, Amal has a true passion for his non-profit and hopes to continue it after high school.
On behalf of 21st Century Leaders, congratulations Lauren! We are proud of all your accomplishments and honored to call you a 21st Century Leader.
