21-year old Omar was always determined to receive a world-class education. He excelled in his SATs ( write the full words) and was accepted at the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 2010, but he couldn’t afford the tuition. Omar applied for and got a full scholarship. His four years of academic excellence and civic engagement proved that it was a well-deserved scholarship. Omar graduated in 2014 but his journey for excellence did not stop there: he has been accepted in a Master’s program in Health Sciences. This was made possible by the generous support of Mr. Tayseer Barakat.
