Q: Where is your family from?
A: My family is from Egypt. I moved to the United States when I was 3 years old.
Q: What were your educational experiences like before coming Intrepid?
A: My education wasn’t really good because my previous school was really crowded. When I came to Intrepid, I had an opportunity to achieve my goals and have a better education than I had before.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I want to be a psychologist because I would love to help children to feel comfortable and confident about themselves.
Q: Where do you want to go college?
A: I want to go to Vanderbilt because I know I’ll get a great education there. From what I hear about it, it’s really cool online casino and I want a positive college experience. I would love to get a scholarship because it will really help me pay. I don’t want to come out of college with a lot of debt. Any good college will provide a scholarship because families like mine can’t otherwise afford a college education.
Q: What are your favorite hobbies?
A: I like to play volleyball and dodgeball.
Q: What else do you want the world to know?
A: Teachers help me if I don’t understand something here. I can ask questions. I can persevere and endure even when I don’t understand at first. In my old school, after I asked questions, I was still confused. Intrepid really helped me get a great education.
