Q1: What is “Dublin’s voice” account for? and is it your own account or is it one of Saudi clubs’ activities?
The Dublin’s voice is a Snapchat account which targets Saudi students in Ireland especially in Dublin. It is my personal account and has no relation with Saudi students club. I aim to make this account a significant source for all Saudi students to use currently and in the future. I believe that the knowledge is power and I have this power so I decided to share it with others.
Q2: What are you providing in this account? and what have you gained?
Basically, I am publishing all what I think is useful to students. Also, I receive their questions and try to answer them based on my experience, or re-post these questions to receive answers from the followers, which is a good way where is a lot of people might have a similar question so the benefits will include them all.
Moreover, I present some recommended places in Ireland as you did on your blog, recommend some good Halal groceries as well as explaining the main processes that students needs like the process to have a Driving License, GINB, re-entry visa and so on.
I believe that the volunteering as a lifestyle, I do not want any financial gain from this account, it is enough for me to get a chance of helping people.
Q3: How do you manage your time between creating content for the account and your study?
In fact, it is not my only volunteering work, I am a multitasking man, I like to be responsible for something that offers a lot of help to people. I believe that with good planning and time management, plus the hard work, you could achieve your ambition and create your experiences.
Q4: What is your feature perspective of this account?
I think this account is a great way to connect with Saudi students and be a platform for all of them. I am thinking to make it non-stop information provider. When I go back to my country, I would like to pass the account for someone who is responsible, like volunteering work, and able to work on the account and make it better.
Q5: Are the recommended places around Ireland that you have mentioned in the account are organic advertising or paid ads?
As I said before I have never gained any kind of financial benefits from this account. All the ads have published in the account are 100% free supporting with real personal opinions. Students need someone honest with them because they deserve to know all these basic information and need someone guide them in their first steps to success.
Q6: How many followers have you get? and how they tend to engage with the snaps?
Until now I have about 3380 followers, they are more likely to capture snaps or re-snaps to others, and sending direct messages. They are very interactive with me in any subject I discuss, also, some of them help me in finding new information or answers to all these questions. Regarding of that, I do not publish any information until I make sure it is true and real because that will affect the account reputation.
Thank you for your time, I appreciate your help and it was nice to have a chat with you.
