A genie grants you 3 wishes, what do you wish for?:  1. Cure cancer because my mom had breast cancer  2. A trip/vacation anytime I wanted for the rest of my life  3. An endless supply of Nutella

Favorite Childhood Memory:  My mom and I would drive in her little red car and we would go to the market to go shopping back home in Egypt.  It was such a simple time with no worries.

Favorite Thing about Tufts:  Everyone’s really open and friendly.  In my high school, everyone’s really censored but here, you can have nothing in common with someone but still sit down, have dinner and have a really nice conversation.

What’s the best compliment you’ve ever gotten?:  Someone told me that I have really nice eyebrows.  They make your face but people rarely compliment them.  It was a very nice and unexpected compliment.

Who do you look up to?:  My mom
