By KAVITA NAIDU and
Inspired by a childhood dream Egyptian globe-trotter Ahmed Haggagovic, has now reached Fiji.
The 28-year-old is internationally known for his message to mankind and has taken him to 98 countries to date.
His message is ‘Everything is possible if one inspires a dream based on freedom, happiness, peace, one world united, no borders, and no racism.’
Mr Haggagovic said, “When I was four, a television presenter asked me what I would like to be when I grow older. I answered I wanted to be the first human to travel around the world.”
With his prime mission of changing the world, he started his journey when he was 15. He went to Germany. His signature phrase is “Dream, believe in it, protect it and have patience. – Haggagovic”
Taking out a torn piece of paper where he wrote his ‘dreams list’ when he was 14, Mr Haggagovic said, “I wanted people to know freedom is the infrastructure of everything.
With freedom people are happy whereas inner happiness is contagious.”
He said anybody could create their own happiness whenever they wanted. He claimed he was the first Egyptian to call for Happiness Friday “Carnival” in Tahrir Square to bolster Egypt’s tourism and has all the copyrights for the event.
He has met a number of renowned personalities including the presidents of France, Brazil and Argentina. He speaks five languages – Portuguese, Arabic, English, French, and Spanish.
Wikipedia encyclopedia describes him as a globe-trotter, world adventurer, peace activist, and has passion for inspiring youths all over the earth.
He is also known as the ‘unusual ambassador of Egypt’ because of the flag he carries around.
Mr Haggagovic, who has spent almost a week in Fiji, says he does not have any political or religious agenda. He is only interested in uniting mankind on freedom, happiness and peace. Samoa is the next island nation he will visit in the South Pacific.
