Egypt

Before my third academic semester exams, I was infected with generalized sub-cortical epileptic activity which led to mild Alzheimer's with temporarily and almost complete memory loss. I was absent and exempted from only one academic year although the treatment still needed few more years. I was about to quit education once and for all. Also, before the bachelor's degree final semester exams, I had a surgery due to a severe humerus fracture and I was about to postpone one more academic year. Although all these struggles, I didn't give up and I had some remarkable fine achievements.

Now I am working as a Business Intelligence Analyst at Vodafone Egypt, an MBA student at Marymount California University, a Computers and Systems Engineer Graduate from Ain Shams University, I am from the 100 MENA scholars that studied at the prestigious Global Business Institute program at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University; I was leading a team that was from the top ten teams that were promoted to present their feasibility study at the Department of State at Washington DC.
