I was fortunate to be born in Alexandria, Egypt, and attend schools there. I graduated from high school, spent three years in collage there, one year in the Egyptian Air Force defense academy and two years studying Egyptian laws. All my studies were in the Arabic language and I have studied Quranic Arabic as well. After I immigrated to the USA, my traveling to Egypt never stopped and my reading in Arabic got better and better. I also passed the Arabic screen test to translate for the courts. In my home we always communicate in Arabic. I consider myself an expert in the Arabic language and currently teach Arabic to 15 students.
