Q: “Tell us about yourself: your family, friends, interests/ hobbies, and your professional experience.”

A: “I am the first child of my family, and as a woman, I believe all that was expected from me was to grow up and get married. But, I know I am built for something greater and bigger things than just getting married. My passion is to be educated and to get degrees. To achieve this, I started reading books to expand my knowledge. Singing, dancing, and traveling became my hobbies. I always ensure I enjoy every stage of my life and achieve every great thing in life.
