My father was a chief officer on a big ship in Syria, on his way to becoming a captain. I would watch him put on his uniform preparing to go to the ship and as a little boy, I was mesmerized. I grew up in the City of Latakia, on the border of Syria, where its citizens are known for living the salt life. I had the salt life running through my blood and I was a natural in the waters. I made it my life goal to be involved in maritime studies, no matter what it took. My parents saw this passion in me and decided to enroll me in the Syrian Arab Republic Ministry of Transport Directorate of Qualifying and Training High school, a high school directed towards young people that were particularly interested in Maritime studies. During my time there, I excelled and had excellent grades, particularly studying Maritime Navigation. After graduation, I was accepted into the Technical Institute for Maritime Transport academy, to continue my major in Marine Navigation. I soon found myself being a young cadet completing my summer semesters on the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. I fell in love with the ocean and the marine life more with each passing day and trip. I knew the salt life was meant for me. In 2010, I had the opportunity to come to the U.S. During that time, I knew I had to start my life all over from zero. I was in a new country, in New York, alone with no family or friends. I worked very hard to survive and understand this new life and system I was suddenly in. No matter how hard life got, I knew I was not going to give up on my dream of going to college and continuing my maritime education. I started driving for Uber, to get back on my feet. On one of my trips, I ended up passing by SUNY Maritime College. I was mesmerized. This school quickly became my dream school and I knew it was a passageway to help me achieve my dreams. I spoke to an admissions officer there and he quickly made the road hard for me. He said being accepted was difficult since I did not graduate high school in New York. I felt like my dreams were crashing down in front of me and I had no idea where to start or what to do to get accepted into this college. I haven’t seen my family in 10 years, I was alone, trying to figure out the college system in the U.S. with no help. I then decided if it was going to take me to start new and fresh at a community college to build my transcript and prove myself that is exactly what I will do. I registered at Kingsborough Community College, majoring in Maritime Technology and started taking classes from the beginning. I excelled in my college and received a 3.6 GPA. I quickly applied to my dream school SUNY Maritime College, and finally got accepted for the Fall 2020. I am majoring in Bachelors of Marine Transportation with the Unlimited Deck License Program. I finished my first semester at SUNY Maritime College Fall 2020 with a 3.1 GPA. My hard work is finally paying off and I could not be happier. As for my future plans after graduation, I want to be a captain of a ship one day ( maybe on a commercial ship company, a international cruise ship company).
