As a first-generation college student coming from immigrant parents, I feel blessed to know that my prayers were answered when I received the birthright travel experience outside of the classroom. I come from a humble beginning living in a single parent household and I feel lucky to have been chosen by Education Partner GrowHouse NYC. I am now very excited to be working with Birthright AFRICA Co-Founder and CEO Walla Elsheikh as a finance intern while I finish my Finance degree at Queens College at the City University of New York. Having the opportunity to learn more about my history is a blessing and I feel even more so today. I plan to use my birthright experience to educate youth and inspire them to fulfill their greatness.
