VIU MBA student Ibrahim Elnems had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to volunteer at the FIFA World Cup 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa. “It was so amazing to be there with all the players, journalists, visitors and other volunteers!” gushed Elnems, excitement in his eyes. “I worked in the Media Center checking press credentials, interacting with journalists and photographers and making sure everyone knew where to go on match days.” As one of the most active volunteers, Elnems got a chance to participate in the closing ceremony rehearsal, where he even got to hold the World Cup itself – 14 kilos of pure gold! When asked about his favorite moments, he responds that meeting superstar players Cannavaro (Italy), Messi (Argentina)
and Ronaldo (Portugal) and especially getting to hold the actual trophy were the most incredible experiences.
