Mohamed Salah

Governance and Policy, 2025


Mohamed Salah’s journey reflects a  fusion of activism, service, and advocacy. Inspired by the Arab Spring and the Egyptian January 25th Revolution, he embraced public service as his life’s mission. From 2012 to 2017, he ardently championed civil liberties and human rights as a dedicated student activist. This fervor led him to the Art of Living Foundation in India, where he delved into conflict resolution
during a transformative fellowship in 2017. A year later, he pursued leadership and international cooperation at the Hansen Leadership Institute, University of San Diego, expanding his global perspective.

Returning to Egypt, Mohamed joined Save the Children Egypt in 2019, focusing on unaccompanied youth and refugee children. Simultaneously he embraced journalism, investigating global Islamophobia for esteemed media outlets, fostering understanding and dialogue. Beyond media, he assisted local nongovernmental organizations in Egypt as an independent consultant, offering invaluable
evaluation and fundraising guidance. Mohamed’ss journey exemplifies his dedication to empowering marginalized communities and advocating for social equity.

After finishing his master of global affairs, he plans to work in data analytics and research for the government of Egypt or for a think tank that focuses on human rights and social policy reform. Mohamed is a recipient of an Ansari Institute Fellowship.
