What would people be surprised to know about you? Something that would surprise people is that I was born in Bethlehem, Jerusalem. At a very young age we were taught Arabic, English and French.

What is a cause you’re passionate about? A cause I’m absolutely passionate about is helping children with special needs. I believe it’s our duty to help children thrive and empower the most vulnerable so they can live life to its full potential.

Why did you choose to attend MSP? I choose to attend MSP because the MA with ABA concentration fits with my career goals. MSP is also a drive away from family; staying within driving distance is important to me.

What do you want to do with your degree/certificate?

After graduation I would like to work with autistic children. Improving their everyday life, helping them unlock their potential.
