When you started volunteering here: I started at FCMoD in November 2017.
Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy playing my violin, going on hikes, listening to podcasts, and playing with my cat and dog.
Hometown: I’m from Dallas, Texas.
Current/previous occupation: I am currently working as a Medical Scribe and Assistant at a Neurology Clinic.

I am keeping my options open!
Favorite book: My favorite book is The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
Favorite vacation memory: My favorite vacation memory was at my grandma’s house in Akka, Israel when my cousin and I found a dove with a broken wing. We were able to foster it and get it the help it needed, so that was neat! My grandmother taught me the word for “bird” in Arabic and I never forgot it!
One thing you want people to know about you: I love meeting new people and learning about what makes everyone unique so if there is anything you would like to know about me, come and introduce yourself!
Favorite thing about volunteering at FCMoD: I like being able to interact with different age groups here at the museum. I also love seeing what kids can teach me and discovering what they are passionate and excited about. The museum creates an excellent space for learning and exploring.
Thank you for all you do for FCMoD, Rawan!
