Embracing change and growing from it

Shawgi Ahmed, Talent & Connections Coordinator for PLACE & Co-Chairperson for Education Above All

For Shawgi, a polyvalent engineer & musician from Sudan, with a penchant for humanitarian action, change can’t hinder growth if you don’t let it. 

Shawgi demonstrated his proven capacity to pivot and grow in the face of dramatic change at the Accelerating Emerging Leadership at the Canadian Embassy in Paris in March 2020. As a keynote speaker, he shared his story, defined by change and resilience, that made us travel from Yemen, to Sudan to France.
