Ahmad is originally from Cairo, Egypt, where he lived for 22 years. His first foray into study abroad came when he lived in the U.S. as an exchange student during his senior year of high school. That experience inspired him to work in international education, where he has built his career over the past decade. After graduating with a BA in International Relations from the American University in Cairo, Ahmad immigrated to the U.S. in 2001, where he pursued his graduate studies at DePaul University and studied abroad in The Netherlands as part of the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society.

Working & Living in a Foreign Country
This experience provided with me the opportunity to not only work, but also live in a foreign country with necessary resources and tools to get the most out of my experience! I highly encourage everyone to travel abroad, but this program is ideal for those who want to see if they would enjoy working and living abroad in their career or future.
