FORMER MIXIT YOUTH LEADER
Mohammed Aljamal is an energetic, disciplined personality. An inspiration to his immediate peers, Mohammed is very focused on his prime passion which is soccer. And rightly so because he is succeeding well in this area. Originally born in Iraq, then arriving in Aotearoa at the age of 17. His first concrete memories of life in New Zealand was going on a school trip and riding a horse for the first time. Although he does categorically state that “A donkey is better!” Mohammed is confident and wants to better himself in the English language, and sees academic study as a great tool to do that. Like many teenagers his age, he loves to listen to Justin Bieber, and also enjoys listening to Arabic house music. Mohammed says “Mixit is about freedom, like a second family- I have fun, and I like to talk to people because it improves my English.” He is a valuable asset to the Mixit project and his enthusiasm and energy combined with his focus will definitely propel him to greater heights in the near future.
