What would people be surprised to know about you? 

I’m an adventurous person! I’ve been skydiving, parasailing, ziplining, and more. I love to try new things even if they seem terrifying.

Name a cause you are passionate about.

I am passionate about raising awareness and providing support for violence against women.

Why did you choose MSP?

I chose to attend MSP due to the diverse opportunities the school offers and the preparation and education provided by staff and faculty that help students prepare for future clinical settings.           

What do you plan to do with your degree?

I want to work with children and adolescents that have behavioral disorders, especially providing support and resources to the Arab American community. With the ABA certification, I hope to sit in on the BCBA exam and use the licensing to apply ABA into therapy but also practice as a BCBA to help children with ASD.

What is your plan after graduation?

After graduation, I hope to obtain my TLLP and sit in on the BCBA exam. I plan to continue my education afterwards.
