Motivation Letter Cairo, 12th Sep., 2012

Dear IFMSA-Egypt Family,

It's an honor to write for you in such letter, First, please let me to introduce myself, my name is Ali Hassan ElSherif, I am going to my 5th year at the faculty of medicine-Alazhar University, and I am the candidate for the National Officer on Reproductive health including AIDS (NORA) Currently, I am the Local Officer on Reproductive health including AIDS (LORA) at AMSA, and the national Coordinator of "Mr. and Ms. Breastestis" The story has begun since March 2010, when I joined AMSA team, and from the first moment, I chose SCORA being an active member from the start, Thanks to those who motivated me in AMSA. My first GA was in Mansoura, July, 2010 with the first SCORA session to attend. I enjoyed the spirit that I got here in SCORA, with motivated faces who want to make a change. I found myself, few hours after the GA searching on Google and Facebook, on our topics, without any guidance... Just I got the self-initiative to start. After My return from exchange program experience to Armenia in Sept.,2010 I could join all SCORA Activities , and I cannot remember missing any event , project during my two and half years. I worked as vice-LORA at the beginning of the term 2011, and ended as LORA at the same term, and for 2012's term till now. I always keen on learning more and more about SCORA world, so I got my chance to be an international Peer Educator after attendance of IPET in Tunisia, 2011. With more and more involvement to work, I was one of the IFMSA-Egypt delegates to MM2012-Ghana , Gaining the international experience.

Motivation Letter Why I am applying for that post? First of all, I got an experience that I should deliver as a sign of responsibility and dutifulness, with a realistic plan, and I am aware of the problems that SCORA is facing today and how we can solve them. I always believe that the real power of the team is the power of each member of it, who work in synchronization with each other, my dream is to empower SCORA members; therefore we can reach our goals. SCORA has proven within the last few years, that we can face the challenges successfully, Challenges of time, idea, taboos, to make a change. Our community really needs our cooperation to achieve its demands… and the power is in the youth people, who are medical students... Who are IFMSAians. To conclude, I hope I assured you of my motivation. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Also you will find here my C.V., Plan of Action, Please feel free to ask questions, if you have any. And finally, I am hopeful to be that right person, in such place like that. I'd like to end with Lao Tzu's quote "Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves." Thanks a lot,

3-Being NGO will help in the fund process. 4-Activation of the Project national team. 5-New LCs motivated to work. 6-Stable political state.

1-LCs Competition as a double edged weapon. 2-Dismotivated team during Work.


3-Changes in our time plan may interrupt the schedule.

Ali El-Sherif’s Candidature For IFMSA-EGYPT NORA 2012-2013

Plan Of Action Action Plan 1- Team Building:A• • •

New LCs:There are 6 new LCs "AAMSS-BMSA-KMSA-FMSA-MMSA-SMA" We will give them support by SCORA Manual, local visits and trainings. Their opinions always should be considered within our national meetings.


National teamI will make 2 national trainings:-

1-Standing Committee management training: for experienced SCORA members allover IFMSA-Egypt and LC representatives, so they will get the good experience, therefore they managerial skills will help them to lead SCORA successfully in their own LCs. 2-SCORA Members national training:That will help the new comers from all LCs and the new LCs... Aiming to make them aware with SCORA world, and increase the national spirit between all of SCORA Angels.

Plan Of Action 2- Timing of Plan:-

A- The problem of the timed plan, that sometimes we ďŹ nd some unexpected conditions that may change our schedule of work, so all LCs must take apart in the decision of our national plan. B- Deadlines of reports, calls, mails should be respected.

Ali El-Sherif’s Candidature For IFMSA-EGYPT NORA 2012-2013

Plan Of Action 3- SCORA Projects:A-

We have ill-defined meanings of Project, initiative and event. Knowing the difference

will facilitate the work process and schedule. Solution:Make a session in our national meeting about those different phrases. B-

For the term 2011/2012, we had a list of national work included:-


Mr. and Ms. Breastestis.


World AIDS Campaign.


International Womens' Day.




SCORA X-Change

For the upcoming term, we have a two sustained things:1-

Mr. and Ms. Breastestis.


World AIDS Campaign.

Mr. & Ms. Breastestis So, as you see … Some ideas are really Motivating to work, For example: "Men Awel El-Satr" Experience within SSS, Youth Health Experience within SMSA, Breast Feeding from ZMSSA, or even MDGs, which came up from some active members. N.B: Ideas are not excluded with old LCs only, but including also new LCs. We can support them with all kinds of support. C-Monitoring the efficacy of the project: LCs should decide if the project are compatible with our vision and mission, and if they make the expected outcome or not, that will be in a task force in cooperation with Project team in IFMSA-Egypt. D- Discuss IFMSA transnational projects that are in a relative relation to our cause.

Plan Of Action 4- Empowering SCORA "One hand … One team":-


Local Visits: It's an essential thing that I am taking it seriously to be done. As I am

used living among Cairo, Tanta, Alexandria and Mansoura, will make it a realistic mission for me, for the LCs allover Egypt, it will not make a hard mission for me. B-

Promote the interaction between LCs, as a unified team, with trainings, Social

atmosphere during work. LCs should keep in touch and in a helpful direct contact with each other. C-

Share all of our work with the utmost transparency, so that we can take the perfect

decision. D-

As IFMSA-Egypt has about 19 different LCs, We can make Sub national Events

between LCs sharing the same region like Cairo LCs"AMSA-AUSSS-MMSA-O6U-SSS".

Plan Of Action IFM


5- SCORA Publications:-


Publications in SCORA include:1-

Local Publications: In order to promote SCORA within LCs, we should publicate for our

Standing Committee, to attract those who believe in our cause at LCs, respecting each LC's policy. 2-

Publication of our work, with photos, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, Electronic and

regular newspapers. 3-

Newsletter of our work, hopes, experiences, not only a regular newsletter, but a special

one. 4-

Publications of our projects during GA/RM.

6-External partners and Fundraising:A-

As IFMSA-Egypt has been recognized as NGO, our contact with the external partners will

be more serious and easier than before. B-

External partners include UNAIDS, UNFPA, Care, BCFE, Caritas and other partners includ-

ing Governmental partners from ministry of health. C-

Fundraising training is a must within SCORA, to give the LCs the opportunity to raise the

fund locally in-case of lack of national fund. D-

Sign a protocol with Y-Peer Egypt, so it will help us to make more peer educators.

in different issues that we need. C-

Plan Of Action Strategy and Policy:1Parallel to Team building stage, we should set up our strategy for the upcoming period … A Real one, not only an ordinary session during our meeting. 2Technically, we have some defects in the reporting; So We should start our reporting form, as a part of our identity, and at the same time more easy to fill. 3- We should put in our consideration also SCORA international Strategic plan. 4- We should start sharing different experiences like MDGs. 5- Women Empowerment is an important phrase that needs to be in practice. Chat conversation end

Last but not least, as you see… Most of my phrases begin With "WE", that means "WE" are the leaders for the change, not me only, it's just everyone has a perfect role in our work… That is the real leadership.
