I am Khaled al-Esali, from Yabroud countryside, Syria.
I am the eldest of my siblings, and the primary breadwinner since we arrived in Lebanon. My father was detained.
My mother was a school teacher.
I have been fascinated with computer games since I was a child.
I took web-design courses and inter-design. Even the movies I watched were around this theme.
I spent my time at a neighbor's shop which is where I learned to repair and program laptops. It opened a whole new world to me.
I worked in a Super Market but developed an interest in electrical appliance repair.
I first sat for the literary track worrying not to be able to make it in science. My work experience confirmed to me that this is not where my heart is.
I sat for the baccalaureate again, this time in the scientific track and made it.
I am a freshman, communications engineering at LIU.
I discovered that I suffer from congenital heart disease. I suffer from the enlargement of the heart . My health would be compromised if I exert strenuous physical activity.
