Education is one of the most important aspects of life. In order for us to grow and mature we need to learn and open up to new stuff. I finished my elementary and high school education back homeland in Lebanon, in a city called Jbeil or Byblos which is the second oldest city in the world. I came to Buffalo, NY, where I pursued my college education and I earned my Bachelors of Science in Chemistry and Masters of Arts in Chemistry.
Being a student at the State University of New York in Buffalo did not only give me a chance to learn a lot and get my degree, but also I opened up the opportunity for me to be a Chemistry Teaching Assistant for two years, where I taught this subject and I still am for undergraduate students for undecided majors as well as engineers.
Along with Chemistry, I like to tutor languages such as Arabic which is my native language, and French which is my second language, where in Lebanon they teach you another language along with the native one from the day you go to school.
For me, teaching should not be based solely on memorizing concepts and facts. However, one should understand the material and analyze it and try to relate to everyday's life and this is something that one can do with Chemistry. Once one, understand the foundations of the material they are studying they will develop a curiosity and have more enthusiasm to learn more and more.
Academia taught me a lot about communicating with people and listening to what they need and try to help them.
I like swimming and dancing a lot as well as shopping, Traveling is something that I like to do one day to learn more about others peoples culture and habits.
For me life is a process a process and learning....
