I am the first one in my whole family that is graduating from a college in the U.S. I was born in the United States, but lived my whole childhood in Aleppo, Syria. When the war started my family came back to the U.S. I didn’t know any English at that time and I thought I will never learn it. I attended 8th grade here and my whole high school at TC Williams in Alexandria, Virginia. I have been on the dean’s list for almost every semester at NOVA in Social Science. I never thought that I will be able to finish my studies here in the United States. I want to have my Bachelor’s degree in Government and International Political and my masters too.
I want my future job to in the U.S. embassy and work there as an American ambassador. I am graduating this fall from NOVA and will start my first semester at George Mason University in Spring 2023.
