Why did you choose McCourt? McCourt School of Public Policy and Georgetown reputation was one of the motivations to do my masters there. Moreover, the Georgetown supportive community and the well-structured programs allowed me to interact with different people worldwide.
What was the best part of your experience? The best parts about my McCourt experience are the values that I learned in my classroom and around campus, the international community I made, and the knowledge I gained that prepared me well for my next phase.
Student organization involvement while at McCourt: I used to volunteer with the Muslim students association and the Campus Ministry.
Undergraduate university and major: King Abdulaziz University, International Business Management
Hobbies / Interests: I love to read and write in my free time, and that led me to use my free time on the lockdown to finish my book about public policy in Saudi Arabia, and it will be published in April 2021. I also enjoy horse riding and sports a lot.
