What are you enjoying about your college experience?
What I love most about college are the endless opportunities that I am presented with to learn and be recognized for my hard work as a student. A&M’s Petroleum program is unmatched, and I am so blessed to be able to utilize the amazing resources and networking opportunities that being an Aggie Petroleum Engineer presents me with. College has been a true testament to me that diligence, hard work, and prayer will open many doors!

How do you feel your time at Legacy helped prepare you for college?
My time at Legacy truly allowed me to develop critical time management skills that have enabled me to manage taking engineering classes whilst also balancing other passions in my life, such as the professional organizations I hold positions in, the sports I play, and ministry.

How was your adjustment to the college schedule based on coming from a university-model school?
My adjustment to my college schedule (17 hours of class each semester) was not difficult for me having come from a high school that allowed me to work at my own pace and get ahead on my studies as I pleased. Attending a university-model school gave me the opportunity to learn how to manage my time efficiently from a young age.

What are some of your fond memories/favorite experiences while at Legacy?
My fondest memory from Legacy would be walking across the stage as Valedictorian with my peers. We had all worked so hard together for the past several years, and this moment of recognition and the start of my future career made all of my hard work at Legacy worth it.

If you had to describe Legacy in one or two sentences to somebody, what would you say?
I would describe Legacy as one of the only schools that allows you to foster yourself and your work ethic sufficiently from a young age. Legacy truly allowed me to work independently as a student while fostering my relationship with Christ.

How does your spiritual life play a role in your college experience?
I wouldn’t have achieved half of the things I have today without prayer and God’s guidance and grace. College gets very overwhelming at times, but reflecting on God’s presence and plan for my life always reminds me that everything I work for is in honor of Him.

Do you feel Legacy helped to grow you spiritually and for doing God’s work?
Having spent the majority of my childhood in Qatar and the U.A.E., attending a Christian school where I was freely allowed to express and develop my relationship with the Lord is one of the vital things that developed my faith as a child. Attending Legacy allowed me to be surrounded by those who kept me strong in my faith and also taught me the importance of God’s plans for our lives. Isaiah 6:8 will forever be implanted in my heart from my days back at Legacy!
