From Syria, Damascus; seeking Undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and is enrolled at Zarqa University.
I am a Syrian refugee in Jordan. a hard worker and a sport enthusiast.
My mother is a pharmacist. My father is an engineer. Both had successful careers back home. My sister is a graphic design major at ZU. My younger sister is a senior in high school.
I was severely impacted by the displacement trauma . I sat for my high school exam three times before finally passing. I was hard hit. It took me years to recover.
Young men my age are about to graduate. Not me. But I haven't given up though.
I used my down time to acquire skills that helped me in life.
I respect only three types of people: those who give others (even a flower might make one's day), those who encourage others (even a smile can make one's day) and those who ask good questions ( more knowledge never hurts!)
Why Would Donors Fund You?
I fell 3 times and got up 4. I am determined to overcome adversity. I have seen what it takes to get up and am willing to extend a helping hand to those in need. I know there are many.
Everyone loves Shawarma. No one tried it cooked to perfection by incorporating the craftsmanship of the past with the advances of technology that Artificial Intelligence offers us today. I will invite my donors to the best AI fired barbecue graduation party when I get my Mechanical Engineering degree.
How Do You Plan to Payback?
My plan is to build next generation machines taking restaurant industry to a whole new level.
I never imagine myself working alone. My work will always be a collaborative community project in which people help each other.
Volunteer Work/Social Capital
I volunteered to teach English as a Second Language to displaced Syrians ages 8-45 with NGOs .
I currently volunteer with MAKANI in the design and implementation of youth initiatives and helping others.
As a freelancer, I teach my own students English privately sometimes. (paid or volunteer?)
I have my own "English" Facebook page to share what I know with others.
