Student, Class of 2017
Hometown: Muscat, Oman

Why did you choose Oregon Tech?

I chose Oregon Tech because the Renewable Energy Program is highly recognized around the world. Before coming here, I searched and found this to be one of the best schools for this major.

Why did you choose your major?

Oman has so many natural resources for renewable energy and I will use my education to help my country develop this field. I’m proud and excited to be the first Omani woman in renewable energy in my country. Renewable Energy has a great future!

What do you plan to do with your degree?

I will continue my education in the graduate program in project management, and plan to work in one of Oman’s solar energy companies. And hopefully own my company in the future!

What would you like us to know about you?

I am originally Omani, but I was born in the U.S. My favorite color is blue. I love traveling and have visited: Arabian Gulf countries, Tanzania, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Monaco, and around the United States!
