Career Goals

I decided to pursue my Ph.D. so that I will be a part of cultivating the minds of students back home. I eventually will go back to teach as part of the faculty in Kuwait University. I hope to later start an early intervention center as well as continue researching in creating standardized norms and continuing the process of creating database for our department.


I love cooking, dancing, and traveling the world
