Did you attend another school before coming to Penn College?

I finished my associate degree in my country at Jubail Industrial College, and then I came here to complete the bachelor’s degree.

I’m really happy that I get this experience here at Penn College. This town is amazing, and I’m really glad that I have this experience in the United States in general.

What do you love about Penn College?

I heard about it from my friend. So I came here because they accept most of the classes that I took in my country. When I came here I found that (the town is) really amazing, and I like the college. The teachers are really helpful, and the course materials are really amazing – helpful and easy to understand. I like it so much.

What is your dream job?

My dream job is to become an engineer in plastics – a production engineer.

Any Favorites foods since you’ve been here?

Here in the United States, at Christmas, I tried turkey. It’s really amazing. I like it so much. The way they cooked it is really incredible.

In my country, there’s a lot of things. We make Kabsa. It could be lamb over rice or chicken over rice.

Last question…cats or dogs?

Well, for me, cats because I have a cat in my home.
