I’m originally from Cairo, Egypt and I love to fence and hope to Fence in college. But most of all I love how neuroscience can fit with my religion Islam. I am researching more about how my belief links to the brain and every time I do I find more stuff, such as how faith and religious thoughts affect the brain and how does it affect it for the better.

I want to study in college aspects of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). This fMRI maps the brain and shows you which part of the brain is used for what. From my perspective, I don’t see any barriers between Islam and Neurology. They both can help us and hopefully will help me to a career in medicine or research (that’s my goal).
