Brand Ambassador of the Month: Hamza!

We have a great set of Brand Ambassadors that are hitting the streets and telling their communities about the Truecaller app. This August, we want to highlight Hamza from Sri Lanka and his achievements in the Truecrew. We welcomed Hamza last month, and so far, he has been a shining star in the Truecrew!

Why did you want to get involved with Truecaller's ambassador program?
Truecaller provides a solution for an important problem that we all face daily- looking up phone numbers. I always wished there was an easy solution to this until Truecaller popped up. The whole concept of an app in today’s tech generation got me excited to want to be a part of the Truecrew and work with the team in further advancing and improving the app for users by participating in Alpha and Beta tests, promoting the use of the app (in Sri Lanka) and obtaining valuable feedback. I found all this and more (True Goodies) in Truecaller’s Ambassador Program that gave me the perfect opportunity to get involved.

How does team work effect being a brand ambassador?
I have a great team of co-ambassadors – Juzer and Avishka. Almost everything we have done as ambassadors has been together and that is why we have been able to put our synergistic ideas to good use. We also have a great Truecrew and super support from HQ at all times so whatever clarifications or issues we have never last for long. This helps us be more responsive to users in the information they want. As a team we were also highly successful in organizing a charity event which could have never been done by me alone.

You do a lot of charitable work in Sri Lanka. What are your main goals this year with your work?
If I were to theme my goals for this year in the lines of charity work it would be “kids and Education.” I believe that education is paramount from setting the right fundamentals in place for people, the society, and the country to grow. It is unfortunate that many kids cannot afford education and as a result some do not go to school while others are forced to drop out. I want to work in such areas by providing scholarships to such students with potential. In addition I hope to also work with homes for disabled kids in providing them with better facilities for education. Education is a never ending process which requires sustainable commitment.

Why do you think Truecrew Brand Ambassadors are important in Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka is a country that is experiencing high levels of development where businesses and people are working continuously to embrace and trust technology striving to be more efficient. Ambassadors, I believe, play an important role in creating awareness about Truecaller among people and educating them on the ways in which the app functions and how it will be beneficial to them. Above all however, it is important to listen to what people are saying about the app and what they want to see in the app as it provides valuable feedback in developing customized features for the Sri Lankan market and improving the app in general.

What motivates you?
I find motivation in many things. It may be a movie, a good book, a conversation with someone, a random dream and even jealousy.

Gadgets of choice
I like getting my hands on the latest phones and investigating into their features.
