Rabat- As social media has proven to be an outlet for creative and innovative people to showcase their interests and activities, Amine Raghib, a Moroccan young man from Marrakesh, stands out from the crowd as the winner of YouTube’s Silver award for having had more than 365,000 people subscribe to his YouTube channel on Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
“I am a very simple person. I started from Zero. What I want to tell you is to hold on to your dreams. Do not make excuses. If you really want to make your dreams come true, you will not make up excuses or blame it on the scarcity of resources,“ he said.
Raghib’s four-year-old YouTube channel, Al-Muhtarif “Arabic for the professional,” has exceeded 300,000 followers. The channel’s content is informative and educational, and “geeks” are said to consider it a good resource for information. The simple and clear methodology Amine Raghib uses to explain the tricks of technology makes the channel’s videos enjoyable by everybody, even those who are not into technology.
Amine Raghib is the first Moroccan to receive the YouTube Silver award for excellence. His videos have received more than 23 million views. He has already been awarded the best blogger prize in Morocco. He also participated in several competitions in the Arab world on technology. He took part in international events including a recent one held by the Universal Center for Journalists in Morocco. He has been received on several TV shows aired on 2M TV channel and Medi 1 TV.
In a video published on his YouTube channel, he thanked his fans and followers with these words of inspiration:
“I am a very simple person. I started from Zero. What I want to tell you is to hold on to your dreams. Do not make excuses. If you really want to make your dreams come true, you will not make up excuses or blame it on the scarcity of resources.”
While there are many other Moroccans who have channels on YouTube, and some have more than 100,000 subscribers, none of them has so far been nominated to win this Silver award.
