Kuwait that is small in size and big in its values, I always utilized opportunities to help people.
The desire to help others was one of the reasons that led me to choosing this major, to build a career supporting people to better their lives, especially children.
Seven thousand, two hundred sixty-two miles I traveled as an 18-year-old international student from Kuwait to pursue a career in speech-language pathology in the United States of America.
A young Arab woman from a traditional home in Kuwait, since my arrival, I have learned to celebrate diversity with great relish.
I choose to complete my studies in the United States for many reasons.
One of them being that US has a diverse populations: refugees, immigrants, and others.
From a young age, I have loved children’s existence in my life and around me.
I enjoy playing, interacting, and taking care of them.
Because of the lack of standardized testing, no diagnoses can be official.
Observing the need of my community further encouraged me to pursue a graduate degree in speech-language pathology.
