" Samah Saad, when she was abroad as a participant in an international competition despite who she is; her background or her profile, her country’s name is what appeared the most to others. Every time she asked a question; every time she engaged in a discussion; every time the mic was given to her… she emphasized ‘’from Algeria’’. She loved representing her country in a diverse multinational gathering, and introducing the capacities Algerian youth held. It was beyond oneself, but more as putting in the spotlight every talented; ambitious; powerful young man and woman from her country, by the way she behaved and won. She led the team who won the first prize of the competition. All what she has learned; all the effort she has put in the competition; all the tough moments the ups and downs the tears… but in that one moment she was on the stage; so proud; and everyone looking at her as a winner, all what she had in mind is the Algerian flag that was in her hands. Raising her country’s flag for everyone to realize that Algerian youth are capable of everything once the chance is given to them. Once the opportunity is given to them! "
