Mohamed Al-Husseini: The First Egyptian With Down Syndrome to Take on A UN Job

Published

on

We are constantly trying to regain faith in the world by breaking norms and false assumptions that usually hold us back from achieving great things.

That’s why it gives us utter joy and pride when we witness the success of people which defies all odds and this is what Egyptian swimmer Mohamed Al-Husseini achieved when he got named spokesperson of the UN High Commission on Disability in Egypt and abroad.

Not only is he the first Egyptian and Arab to be appointed such a role but he is also the first person with Down Syndrome to become a UN’s spokesperson, giving him the chance to attend global conferences that will allow him to share his story, struggles, hopes and goals.

According to the commission’s director, Reda Abdel Aziz, Al-Husseini was chosen because of his impressive swimming achievements. Taking a look back to 2017 for instance, the 18-year-old crossed the English Channel after training for more than 10 hours a day, making him the first swimmer with Down Syndrome to reach such an accomplishment.

This recognition comes just in time because Egypt has been indeed trying to encourage and empower people with disabilities as just a few months back, the parliament gave final approval on a draft law that was submitted by the government to establish the National Council for People with Disabilities this year.

Now, we all hope that more people can feel the motivation to take on similar steps and prove others wrong.
