In May 2013, I was awarded a Bachelor degree of Science in Management Information Systems from KFUPM. When I look back to my journey to achieve that B.S., I see an amazing adventure, full with extensive learning, experience and personal achievements. Since the beginning of my B.S journey, I faced major obstacles that strengthened my personality, gave me confidence, and a great deal of experience.

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.
