Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in Syria and came to America at the age of 5. My parents brought me to America for a better life and for better opportunities. My family is everything to me. They have done so much for me and fully supported me to get to the point I am at today. As a first-generation college student, I am driven by my desire to make both my parents and myself proud. I want to make them proud and prove to them that their invested time and energy did not go to waste.
