Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.” -Yann Martel

I lead my life with this quote in mind to ensure that I keep moving forward and to never doubt myself as doubt leads to the destruction of any novel idea.

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." This is one of my favorite quotes because I have always been someone who likes to stay in their comfort zone. However, by being at Bauer and joining Beta Alpha Psi I have learned to step out of my comfort zone and grow as a person. As I came out of my comfort zone I was able to build confidence and network with recruiters and professionals and by doing so I received an internship offer from one of the Big Four Public Accounting Firms. Therefore, I truly believe that life does start at the end of ones comfort zone.

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

My favorite quote is "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them" from Matthew 6:1. People should not boast out of conceit but instead out of honesty. I try to live with integrity so that I can stand behind any decision I make in private or public, and I strive to live with this verse in mind.

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

"We rise by lifting others" - Robert G. Ingersoll

I like this quote because I see this happen everyday, whether it is by opening a door, or smiling at someone who I don't know. I can see that it makes a difference in the environment we live in and those people pass it forward to others. Recently, I began a charity for an elderly woman who lost everything in Hurricane Harvey and I began to see that the people I hadn't spoken to in a very long time were taking initiative to keep the movement of my charity going. Hence, not only was I helping a victim of the hurricane, but these people were helping me rise to help her. As a result, in under a week I reached my goal and the friendships I had forgotten were renewed as well. When I think about how people help each other in big and small ways it is truly amazing to see this happen in real life and that's why this is my favorite quote.

Mohammed Dada

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

"He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life." - Muhammad Ali. These words remind me to not get complacent or, even worse, have a fear of stepping out of my comfort zone. Everybody that has reached a level of greatness has at some point stepped into unchartered territory, or done something they weren't sure of in order to take the next step in their ascension to success. Comfort and fear lead to failure or mediocrity at best, and I'm trying to transcend all barriers, not box myself in.

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark." This quote reminds me that many people simply assume that they will fail at things they consider to be beyond them. In this way, many people defeat themselves before even allowing themselves a proper audition. This quote reminds me to try for the best, because you never know what you might just stumble upon.

Q. What is your favorite quote? Why?

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word." - Martin Luther King Jr.

I have many favorite quotes, from joy and love to death and war. I feel though, the eloquence of King is that of strong unity and compassion. Speech that has not lost its context in the last half century. The language has only grown stronger and more symbolically important. I do believe that one day, the hopes, dreams and successes of millions of the persecuted will finally be fulfilled, be it across the world or in my neighborhood.

My favorite quote would be “You can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be, that you forget to make the most of where you are". Being college students struggling to balance between academics, family/friends, organizations and work, it can be rather difficult to appreciate what we already have in front of us.

Sometimes people just need a gentle reminder to take time for themselves and live in the moment.

Q. In terms of education or career, what is your short-term or long-term goal?

Ever since I can remember, I have always been passionate about volunteering my time and helping others. Community service has always been important to me but I had no idea how impactful volunteers, mentors, and philanthropy programs were until my father passed away from Hodgkin's Lymphoma and I found myself in need of support. The fact that complete strangers were willing to open their hearts and volunteer their time to help ease my pain is why I have chosen to devote my time, education, and adult life to paying it forward. After I graduate from UH, my goal is to start a non-profit organization that supports children who have been affected by the loss of a parent. I want to make certain that all children affected by such a loss feel loved and supported in their time of need, just as I did.
