About me

I was born and raised in Sudan, where one of the dominant cultural values is collectivism. For almost three decades, I witnessed how an individual would care for another by putting his or her own needs last. This culture has formed my values and beliefs and significantly added to who I am today. At a young age, I learned how to be supportive and giving in a great sense of compassion. Thinking about the other has helped me in building and maintaining a high sense of integrity and advocating for justice and respecting others. The sense of caring for a community has always encouraged me to act and react for the benefit of all.
