Ghaith is an inspiring Libyan medical student, making waves with his motivational speeches on social media. At just 20 years old, he is the youngest participant of  #InTheirEyes, dreaming big and working hard towards making a change. 


Ghaith has always been passionate about having a positive impact on others, and this inspired him to become an online motivational speaker. Ghaith’s journey as a content creator began during a difficult period in his life when he found solace in listening to motivational speakers from around the world. He decided then to become a transmitter of that same positivity and started creating videos where he speaks in a similar style to his favorite speakers. Ghaith firmly believes in the power of words and their ability to transform lives. He wanted to use his own voice and experiences to inspire and help others facing their own struggles. Recently, Ghaith has expanded his content creation to include travel as well. He has been partnering with the “Libyan Youth Hostels”association and has been exploring various parts of Libya, documenting his experiences and showcasing the beauty of his country through his videos.


Ghaith’s proudest moment was when he graduated high school and was among the top 10 best students in Libya. This achievement instilled in him a sense of pride and determination to keep pushing himself to achieve even greater things. Now, as an EU Goodwill ambassador, Ghaith feels honored and motivated to continue his journey of inspiring and uplifting others.


One of the biggest challenges facing youth in the region, according to Ghaith, is access to quality education and opportunities. As a medical student himself, Ghaith understands firsthand the difficulties that come with trying to balance studies and content creation. However, he refuses to let these challenges hold him back and instead continues to strive towards his goals with confidence and determination.


Ghaith’s favorite quote is “I will work towards perfection, even though I know I cannot achieve it.” It perfectly captures his mindset and approach to life. He refuses to settle for anything less than his best, and is always striving to improve and grow as a person and content creator. 

I will work towards perfection, even though I know I cannot achieve it.
