Go Beyond, Campaign for Wheaton“Scholarships have a ripple effect. I’m at Wheaton because I was supported by scholarships and I’m very grateful. My goal has always been to go back to disadvantaged communities like the one I grew up in and help the people there.

I was gone for four months to study in Muscat, Oman. I learned Arabic; I learned to read it, write it and speak it. Now, I’m trilingual. What led me to choose Oman is that it was completely different: a different environment, different religion, different culture. The experience made me a more conscious individual and a more informed individual, and that is very important.”
