14 Jul Team Tunisia 2020 🇹🇳
The 2020 FIRST Global Challenge Team Tunisia is composed of 6 talented Tunisian teenagers from a city called Sfax. Our team is guided by 2 mentors, Mr. Rabah Hammouda and Mrs. Faten Khalfallah. Together they inspired us to be among the world leaders and change-makers in fields of Technology, Science, Engineering, and Mathematics. Representing Tunisia in this challenge is a remarkable experience in our lives that will help us strengthen our skills and abilities through learning and discovery. We are coaches, assistant coaches, and mentees in an association that feels like a second home to us: First Skills Club, a Tunisian non-profit organization that aims to help young generations learn English using modern technologies such as 3D design, robotics, programming, etc. Upon our selection to join the team representing Tunisia in the 2020 FIRST Global Challenge, we set a clear and common vision to do our country proud. Despite the critical time we are living because of COVID-19, we are supported by the previous teams, 2017, 2018, and 2019 FIRST Global Tunisian teams and are devoted to learning from their past triumphs to achieve our own. Using our various skills, ranging from technical to interpersonal, our team’s various abilities will help us make it to the top. We believe that this competition won’t be only about competing against each other, but it will be about bringing all countries and communities together in such hard times, and serve as a chance to expand our network made up of young changemakers all around the world. There is also no doubt that we will follow the lead of the previous teams and assist the new ones that will be, hopefully, participating in the future FIRST Global Challenge editions.
