Why did you become a mentor: I always love to help people, especially if they are new to a place. I was one of the people who really needed help when I came to the United States and there was so many people that helped me, and I would love to do the same thing to other people and make them feel safe and fulfilled; just the way I felt.

Biography: My dream is to be a cardiovascular surgeon. I am minoring in German, psychology, and Arabic. I believe that patience and hope are the most important things for succession. my favorite quote is "God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith, but it's worth the wait." -Unknown
