A DREAM OF TUITION- FREE ONLINE EDUCATION IS NOW A REALITY

May 12 ,2010

"My name is George. I was born in 1963 and raised in Aleppo, Syria. I have got my elementary education in a private school which taught Arabic and French. After my high school graduation, I attended engineering courses at the University of Aleppo. At this time I had to work to support myself and my younger sister after both of my parents passed away, so I had to quit my college studies and dedicate my time to working. 

 

My first job was in the early 80’s at my uncle’s firm, dealing in transport and customs clearance business. I worked there for almost a decade. Afterwards I started my own business in the same domain, which was profitable for me. I also joined a company in late 90’s working in cosmetics as a branch manager. In 2002, I was offered to work in Saudi Arabia in the post of Sales Manager. A few years after, I joined another company as Purchasing and Administration Manager.  

 

While my career was improving, the dream of completing a degree was always following me. Unfortunately, my working schedule was too busy, and the only opportunity was “Online learning”!"
