Asmaa Berkia is from Beni Mellal. She majored in English Linguistics at Sultan Moulay Slimane University, where her thesis focused on bilinguals’ attitudes toward Arabic-English code-switching about their gender. She is currently pursuing a professional diploma in business management, and she aspires to pursue a career in social entrepreneurship as well as create her organization. At the age of 22, Asmaa became a CorpsAfrica/Maroc Volunteer, serving for a year and a half in a village located in the High Atlas Mountains. During her service, she organized and coordinated various activities such as teaching Arabic, leading preschool sessions, and facilitating soft-skills workshops and financial literacy classes. In addition to these activities, Asma helped her site’s local cooperative implement an ‘irrigated thyme’ project, which is considered the best example of social entrepreneurship in the commune of her site. Asmaa also played a key role in protecting her site against COVID-19, as she provided her community with information and materials needed to avoid the danger of the virus. Ultimately, Asmaa is looking to develop her leadership, community engagement, and management skills to be a great decision-maker.
