‘I started playing volleyball when I started primary school. I loved the sport from an early childhood. When I started secondary school I met on my way sitting volleyball coach Massadva.

 

I was stopped as I walked down the street and we talked about sitting volleyball.  I was 13 years old but had never heard of the sport.  I went to the first training session and I saw what it looked like, I felt great.  I had not had a chance to play with people with disabilities before. I decided to join the team and start my adventure in sitting volleyball.  I spent all my attention with this discipline and after a while I became a key player for the club, so I joined the Egyptian National Team.

 

Since that time, I have participated in many major tournaments such as the Continental Championships and the Paralympic Games.  I hope that I will continue my passion for volleyball for the rest of my life.’
