Hital Muraj, 2010 Global Ambassador of Youth Award Winner
Congratulations to Hital Muraj! Hital, Cisco’s Area Academy Manager for East Africa, recently received the Global Ambassador of Youth Award for her efforts on behalf of Kenyan youth at the New Look Foundation’s inaugural 2010 World Leadership Awards ceremony in Atlanta.
Famed singer Usher founded the New Look Foundation in 1999 to support young people in using their talents and creativity to be global, corporate and community leaders. Says the New Look Foundation about Hital:

“Whether it is creating an information communications skills training centre or whether it’s personally investing her time and money to help an entrepreneur in Kibera open an Internet cafe, or help other young entrepreneurs in Kibera or other areas of her country, she has done it all. She does it with humility, kindness, warmth and grace.”
We at Inveneo could not agree more. Inveneo is very proud to work with such wonderful and committed partners as Cisco and Hital and we congratulate her on this extraordinary recognition. Of her many efforts, she says:
“My urge to help the youth is driven by the need to provide opportunity – an essential factor capable of bringing out an individual’s talent,” she says. “In my life and career, I have learnt the value of giving one a chance of doing something, opportunity has the potential of bringing out the hidden talent in someone.”
We thank Hital and Cisco for giving us the opportunity to help empower youth with access to information and communication technologies.
