Faces of AUS



Added: November 6, 2016

My transition from high-school to university was a bit difficult because I studied in a French system, so I had to learn to adapt to how the American system works. Thankfully, I was prepared and was aware that the transition would not be easy anyway, so I was able to adapt even though it was tough. Initially, I was planning to study engineering or medicine, but I read about Finance in the undergraduate catalogue and decided that it’s what I want to do. It’s not what I planned, but I’m liking my major a lot so far. I’m also looking forward to taking part in the different clubs next semester, because I come from Syria and the environment here is different, so it’s exciting.

Dima Albouza is studying Finance at the American University of Sharjah.
