So, I’m speaking to you today, and to millions of people worldwide, to tell you that Sports save lives and bring us all together, regardless of the dark times.”

Nour Loubani, Qatar

Nour is passionate about the positive impact Generation Amazing has had on her life as a Sports Science student at Qatar University. She expressed that GA plays a big role in her education as she is able to implement the Football for Development training she has had with GA, into her university courses, which often earns her a good grade with her professors. She was first introduced to GA at the Festival 2019, which she says was one of the best experiences she has had. Her favourite part was interacting with so many other like-minded youths from all over the world, in which she was able to really understand and implement what F4D really meant. Since graduating as a 2021 Youth Advocate, Nour has refused for her journey with GA to end there, and has since joined the team as a coach for the ability friendly classes, amongst many other activities. Nour is especially grateful that GA has opened up many opportunities for her within the industry including her most recent trip to Jordan at the ‘Future Leaders in Football’ workshop that was organised by the German Corporation for International Cooperation’s (GIZ) and the German Football Association sport for development program.
