What led me to step forward and compete for a seat on the World Scout Committee is deeply ingrained in my personal journey with scouting. It’s not just about fulfilling a duty; it’s about embracing a calling I feel within my core.

Scouting has been more than a mere activity for me—it’s been a guiding force shaping who I am today. As Chief Commissioner of the Scout Association of Maldives, I’ve experienced firsthand the transformative power of scouting in the lives of young people. It’s this profound impact that fuels my unwavering commitment to promoting good governance and ethical practices within our organization.

One of my proudest moments was establishing the National Scout Youth Forum and integrating youth structures within our NSO. Seeing the enthusiasm and dedication of our young scouts reaffirmed my belief in the importance of empowering them to shape the future of scouting.

My passion for addressing issues like climate change stems from a deeply personal place. Growing up surrounded by the natural beauty of the Maldives, I’ve witnessed the fragility of our environment firsthand. It’s this firsthand experience that drives me to educate and empower young people to take meaningful action to protect our planet.

My involvement in international scouting has been equally enriching. Serving as a Youth Representative to the World Scout Committee and as Chairperson of the APR Young Adult Member Group has shown me the immense potential of youth involvement in decision-making processes. It’s a potential I’m deeply committed to nurturing and amplifying.

In essence, my decision to stand for the World Scout Committee is not just about fulfilling a role; it’s about honoring a lifelong commitment to scouting and its values. I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to compete in these elections, and I ask for your support as I embark on this deeply personal journey to serve scouts worldwide.

Together, let’s continue to build a brighter future for World Scouting, one step at a time.
