In some days, I worked for 18 hours a day, and that was the case until September 2006, where I was hired in a decent full-time job at KFUPM.

I was ecstatic to be offered membership to the Honor Society. Immediately I envisioned myself at graduation wearing my cap and gown complemented with Honor Society Regalia.

Looking back on this past year, my first year as a college student, it is amazing to see how much I have grown through my academic and personal life.

One of the proudest moments of my life came in 2012 when I received my Associate of Arts degree and graduated as the class valedictorian.
