Hello Mohamed,
You have a good basis to start out from, but immediately the first thing I notice (And the first thing the schools will notice is that your work experience is very much on the low side) I'd suggest rather that you use this year to take your GMAT and get more leadership experience and apply in one or two years when you have improved your candidacy further. It feels a bit too fresh now, and you will just be settling for a less good school than you can get into in one or two years hence. But DO go ahead and get that GMAT out of the way.

Good luck to you!

You got it,
Good luck on the test, and let us know how you do.
One last thought. Your profile is pretty good so far, but the one thing that maybe you can push harder on if you aren't applying for another year is on the volunteering stuff. Sponsoring a kid is fine, but not all that spectacular. The best would be if you could get some sort of leadership role in some sort of volunteer thing (be it church, village, community or big organization)

Cheers

Happy to help buddy!

For "leadership in the community" (And actually for everything else), you don't need to worry about how you will prove anything to the AdCom. You just need to do it, and it needs to be true. That's it.

Good luck with everything, and hope to hear from you soon before you apply!
