Name: Ganna Al-Mansoub
Recipient Year: 2013
Bio: Ever since I can remember, school has always been important to me and excelling in my classes was always top priority. I am a first generation college student, thus it was difficult to convince my father to allow my sisters and I to pursue higher education, but subhanAllah somehow we ended up going to college, and have been very successful since. My passion lies in the field of Islamic history and the Arabic language. Alhamdulilah, in May 2013, I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Near Eastern Studies and a minor in Arabic. Currently, I am a Masters student studying Near Eastern Languages at Wayne State University (concentration is Arabic). InshaAllah, once I obtain my Masters, I plan to pursue my PhD in Islamic Studies, inshaAllah, as my ultimate career goal is to be a college professor/work in academiaUPDATEGanna graduated in 2015 and is currently working for Michigan Institute of Urology.
