Credit where credit’s due

Mohamed Alnomire was Chair of the YCA from 2005 – 2010.

I don’t think the community would understand the great deal of work that has been done because they would never realise how much work [is involved]…However, I’ve always said… “The star of the film is not the actor; it’s the people behind the scenes”. So I might have shined and given a talk or – you know because the credit seems always to be given to the Chair. And the criticising at the same time’s always given to the Chair!  But I think it’s always essential to praise the ones who have really done the work behind the scenes because they are the true stars and they are the ones that made the YCA. They were the ones who have had sleepless nights and they’ve never been recognised by the community. And it’s them that made me, and them that made the YCA.
