Biography: Born in Baghdad, Iraq and raised in Cairo, Tucson, and Boston, I am a first-generation immigrant aspiring to be a computer engineer with a passion for community engagement and social justice.
Featured in the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, WCVB, Fox25, and NPR Radio for my academic achievement, I was the honorary valedictorian of the Boston Public Schools. I have beaten the odds against me: from escaping war, living in a refugee camp, attending underfunded urban public schools, to attending Brown University on a full scholarship.
At Brown, I was selected as a Bonner Community Fellow, responsible for community engagement and outreach around Providence. I am the Campus Campaign Coordinator to Teach for America, focusing on recruiting Brown's most ambitious diverse leaders to become TFA teachers. Additionally, I am the Head Delegate of Ivy Council, First-Gens@Brown delegate, and a National Ambassador for QuestBridge Scholars.
