It is said, ‘Some souls have an infectious personality’. The Salti sisters were full of energy and zeal. Today, their sudden death has left the world in shock, but their goodness shall prevail always.
Soraya Salti the founder of Injaz Al-Arab, an education initiative that aims to empower youth and promote entrepreneurship across the Arab world was known for her revolutionary ways to promote young talent. Jumana Salti was part of the government and public sector strategy team at PricewaterhouseCoopers. She had spent years working on the development of economic and socio-economic issues.
Both the sisters had a mesmerizing aura. They played a crucial role in inspiring not only youth, but also businessmen and suited-up officials. While Soraya received several recognitions for her contribution to the Arab World, Jumana was honored for her efforts in strategizing innovative solutions that eased the socio-economic issues. Great colleagues who would go an extra mile for co-workers, the Salti Sisters were always ready to help. An inspiration to many, the Salti sisters always practiced and shared the following that makes them an extraordinary youth icon:
• Take an initiative to initiate. Success will come along the way.
• Take care of your squad. Success comes to those who value their people.
• Stay optimistic and persistent. Right things happen at the right time
• Keep learning, for learning is a process that helps you grow.
• Keep yourself grounded. What is there today has to fade tomorrow.
Jordan, and indeed the Arab world, has lost two great leaders. They will be deeply missed and remembered always. We pray for their families and hope the souls of the two icons rest in peace.
