Brief Biographical Sketch:

As a current undergraduate student at Stanford, I am very interested in engineering and mathematics. But I am also a big fan of learning about and experiencing other cultures. It's very fascinating to think there is a whole world outside of your current sphere rich with a profound history of music, arts, and science, and I am in love with exploring those cultures. My dream is to someday make enough money to take me and my family to explore the cultures around the world. I am also an international student from Saudi Arabia and a native speaker of Arabic, and so I would love to share my culture and language with all the different people in the United States. I am a firm believer that the co-existence of different cultures and their interplay greatly influences innovation, and that's why I am excited to introduce people to my culture and language! :)
