Issam Lagrichi (MOROCCO)

Born and raised in Morocco in 1982. As a child always told his parents: "One day I'm going to be the Prime Minister". A few years later Issam finds himself in Aberdeen, the UK studying for a BEng in Electronics and Communications and later a Postgrad in International Business from the Robert Gordon University.

In 2006, he embarks on a totally new journey, Walt Disney World! Where he worked as a guest services host at the magic kingdom in Orlando, FL. Disney taught Issam the American Dream and that nothing is impossible. After completing his cultural representative program, he moved to New York then to San Diego where he got into retail management. Fast forward few years he ends up joining a humanitarian organization called Helping Hand for relief in development that is a 4-star charity in the navigator operating globally in over 50 countries. The last couple of years his focus was Africa. He realized that his beloved continent of birth was forgotten about due to chaos all over the world in Burma, Syria, Yemen, Latin America.....etc. With the big support of the San Diego community and other communities around the US, Helping Hand was able to establish several water wells, latrines, skills development facilities, educational programs, performs 100s of eye surgeries, assist flood victims and much more.

Since the big loss of the legendary Muhammad Ali, Issam and his team have honored him annually with an event held on June to celebrate his life and love for Africa, while funds are raised to fulfill more projects in the continent. As we speak him and his teams are loading up a 40ft container filled with clothes, shoes, and bedding that will be delivered soon to those in need in Somalia. Issam is also involved in several interfaith groups in San Diego, educating folks on the beauty of faith in action and being part of the solution and not the problem and ultimately bringing people closer together to stand for Justice and Peace and fights all forms of evil. He is very optimistic that the future is bright and that together we can run far
