About me

I am from Cairo, Egypt. I have been living in Reading for 3 years now where I am in my final year. I speak both English and Arabic. I have lived in Egypt my whole life and moved to the UK when starting university. I love to play the piano, read, cook and bake, eat and travel.

Tell us 3 ‘interesting’ or ‘fun’ facts about you

  1. I have won the student masterchef competition in University of Reading.
  2. I appeared on TV in the World Cup of 2018 in Russia.
  3. I am a sushiholic and chocoholic.

What do you want to achieve in the role or get out of the role?

I want to have been able to accomplish everything I wrote in my manifesto and to be able to help internationals as much as I can and be there for them. I also want to try to have internationals interact more with British students where they unite.

RUSU have created student-run, peer-support networks for you. This is your opportunity to meet other students from similar backgrounds, share common experiences and receive advice and support from each other. RUSU’s International Students’ Officer will be running a peer-support network for international students. You can find out when and where the next meeting is at the Student Networks page.
