I have always wanted to be involved in bringing Yemen out of the health crisis it faces, especially after the ongoing war and the unstable conditions. I am hoping that my experience and education abroad will equip me with the skills I need to be one of the figures who can benefit the Yemeni society, improve the health system, and relieve hunger.

I have faced and overcome many challenges. I’m the oldest of my brothers and sisters and the first in my family generation to go to college. It was very hard to leave my son and wife in my country, but I send my blessings to them every day and thank my wife for her support to get me where I am standing today. I continue to feel great pride and honor about my beloved Yemen.

Yemen has great resources in terms of solar irradiance, and the usage of solar energy has the potential to partially solve this chronic problem. When the time is right, after my education and some practical training, I will do my very best to help bring this technology to Yemen.
