I am Hamdan Alameri, a second year Economics major at Lewis and Clark College. While growing up in the United Arab Emirates, I published my first book, which was released two years ago. It included many meaningful stories that teaches children a multitude of lessons. Many scholars in my country have recognized me. I received the prestigious Zayed bin Hazaa Al Nahyan award for leadership. In Egypt I received third place in a competition for great speakers around Arabian countries. I have attended a wide variety of workshops in different areas such as leadership, time management, problem solving and more. In addition, I launched a club named “Egtanem Wagtek” in which I recruit children from my community to volunteer in many aspects of society, including assisting the elderly and helping with orphans. Last year, I led one of the Spring Into Action projects, placed as an alternative winner for 100 Projects for Peace and in December of 2014, I led two events for my club: a trip to Mecca and a festival for the children. I like being active and have new friendships with you to exchange our thoughts and experiences. Looking forward to meeting you ALL!
After visiting many campuses around USA, I found that Lewis and Clark is the most attractive place for me. I will never forget how friendly the students were and my first impression after seeing L&C beautiful campus surrounded by this magical nature. Beside being a liberal arts school, Lewis and Clark college has good amount of friendly students who welcome other cultures respectfully. I like the leadership emphasis that our college put through leadership and services office and other programs like Passport to Leadership. I enjoy being here and I hope that others do us well.
