Welcome New LE•O Scholar

Marah Abdin

Marah Abdin to attend University of Rochester

I was born to a Palestinian family in the city of Jerusalem. Throughout my life, even though my parents never got the chance to attend college, my two sisters and I have always been raised to put education before anything else and to understand that it is our voice in this world. I have always been interested in technology and the marvelous revolution it has caused, and I had the opportunity to develop this interest at Al Nayzak Organization for Supportive Education and Scientific Innovation. As a result, I am looking forward to pursuing a bachelor degree of science in Computer and Electrical Engineering. After self-studying the SATs and with the help of the Leonard Education Organization (LE•O), I was offered a full scholarship to study at the University of Rochester. It was through Al Nayzak organization that I was introduced to LE•O and had this chance. Hopefully, this opportunity will make a great and a very significant change in my life and education.
