Batoul from Jordan, Exchange student studying English

I admire and am inspired by Lina Khalifeh.   She is from Jordan and is the founder of the place I work in my home country- the only self defense studio for women in Jordan and the Middle East. She started from zero and now she has won many awards and was mentioned by the president Barack Obama last year for her work.

I admire Dr. Nataliya Uboha.  Nataliya came to the U.S. as a 15 year old exchange student in high school . She returned to attend Washington University in St. Louis where she completed her undergraduate degree. In 1999 she became a student in Yale University's Medical Scientist Training Program & completed her PhD in Neuroscience & her MD. After a fellowship in Oncology she is a Professor at the University of Wisconsin Medical School & an American citizen. I am so proud to have Nataliya as my beautiful daughter in law & the mother of my granddaughters.
