Palestinian, from Kufa; seeking Undergraduate degree in Data science and artificial intelligence and is enrolled at University College Of Applied Sciences.
ّI am Roaa, Arabic plural for vision, a Palestinian student from Gaza seeking a bachelor's degree in Data Science & AI.
My family held science and education in a sacred place. My father and mother are college graduates: he holds a degree in History, she in nursing. I have 7 siblings: 6 sisters and a brother.
I was always true to my name. I had a strong personality and knew what I wanted to do. I always wanted to major in Media and Communication technology. I had a natural sounding broadcasting voice so I thought that would be my career.
Besides, I thought that being a radio anchor would give me the opportunity to mentor and be a role model for many young women who drop out of school.
That was until the time came to join college. I remember how my mother convinced me to forget about media studies. Learning a new discipline should be my goal. Doing so would still allow me to leverage my public speaking talents as a hobby. I have mastered public speaking and know I can do it - with or without a degree. Majoring in AI and data science will help us benchmark progress, and plan for our goals.
This is what our community and the world at large need at the moment.
Why Would Donors Fund You?
I've always wanted to be a journalist on TV, but the DS&AI department really attracted me.
1- I would like to conduct awareness courses on the importance of education for women.
2- An application based on AI and digital assistance to help girls who cannot attend seminars and get out of the house through an interactive environment to help them complete their education.
3- Develop the app and provide lectures for useful specialties for girls to support girls who cannot get out of the house.
How Do You Plan to Payback?
I dream of building an app that supports girls and educates them about the importance of education and how it affects their lives and also so that they can look for their talents that they have not yet discovered, but the idea of this application will be different as we will rely on an interactive environment, where every girl asks for advice on how she chooses the department she wants to join or how she will return to the education environment after her interruption 'there will be a smart assistant to respond to these queries' and also there will be a women's team to respond to All queries that maybe the smart assistant does not give them the right to respond.
Volunteer Work/Social Capital
- Participation and coordination in organizing the celebrations of high school graduates.
- I volunteered in the Palestine Red Crescent society Foundation as part of the first aid team.
- I volunteered in the school parliament team with extracurricular activities.
- Participated in the picking of olive crops for farmers.
But now I have devoted time to volunteer work at the university and become part of the volunteer team there.
- I participated in organizing some of the university's meetings for educational seminars.
- I attended a number of meetings concerned with educating students on how to use the Internet.
