Bahae Sanari is a young man with many talents, as an athlete turned content creator, he works on content focused on storytelling, travel experiences, and social activism. Actually, Baha has already achieved great success in his athletic career as a member of the national Kung Fu team, where he became the champion of Morocco and went on to represent his country in international competitions, winning a silver medal.


However, Baha’s journey as a content creator did not start as smoothly. The story behind it is that his friends challenged him to become an influential content creator with a significant following without resorting to meaningless content that attracts followers. This challenge inspired him to create meaningful content on education, travel, and culture, reaching a broad audience without resorting to negative tactics or what he calls “bad buzz”. 


Bahae’s content focuses on storytelling, travel experiences, and social activism. His philosophy on content creation centers on his values and principles, which he constantly reflects on and updates. Bahae feels that if he remains true to himself, people will be satisfied with his work.His proudest moment was when famous people he admired recognized and praised his content. It was then that he realized he had accomplished his dream of reaching the level of success he once thought was so far. 


Before participating in #InTheirEyes, Bahae had thought of the EU as something theoretical and formal, something he had studied about in school. However, after getting to know the people working in the EU-funded programmes and learning about their work, Bahae now considers the EU as family.


According to Bahae, the main challenge facing youth in the MENA region is a lack of opportunities. The EU offers various programs, but sometimes, the targeted youth do not hear about them or understand their significance. Bahae believes that more communication about these programs and more opportunities are needed to reach deserving individuals who may miss out.



Bahae, the young Moroccan content creator and former Kung Fu champion, is a shining example of what can be achieved with determination and a commitment to one’s values. Bahae has already achieved remarkable success in his athletic and creative endeavors, and his future looks bright as he continues to inspire others with his meaningful content.

When things come from the heart, it goes straight to the heart.
