“If we stay in our comfort zone, we will not improve. To move forward, we should have the courage to change.” – Mohammed “Sal” Salem, Saudi comedian
Popular oral hygiene brand Oral-B hosted an event to promote their campaign #iSwitched at Effat University this past Wednesday, 8th November. #iSwitched is about switching from a bad habit to a good one, and promoting a healthy lifestyle change.
Headlining the Oral-B campaign is Saudi influencer and comedian Mohammed “Sal” Salem, who spoke at the event to Effat students about his #iSwitched experience. He was studying pharmacy when he started being a YouTuber, something that changed his career path’s direction.
He advised the students to have a Plan B in their lives, something enjoyable and different from what they are doing now. Sal’s Plan B, for instance, was to become a YouTuber and he became an influencer along the way.
Speaking to Destination Jeddah, Sal urges readers to not be afraid of change. He was hesitant and afraid of change in the beginning, too, but with support from his mother, he managed to step out of his comfort zone and do something he loves and enjoys as a full-time job.
