“I believe that educators are the mind-shapers for the next generations. As educators we are not only responsible for conveying scientific material to students but also helping them unleash their hidden potential. What satisfies me most is seeing my former students succeed in their professional and personal lives after they graduate." 

- Mohamed Askar
