Coming all the way from Jordan, after going through many different struggles, Noor Abdulkarim is now a full time SDSU sophomore, majoring in Finance who is continuously aiming for higher ambitions that would later serve her in many different and diverse opportunities. This goal of hers caused her to join several high school clubs such as Red Cross, Key Club, and much more in order to live her high school life to the fullest. However, being the person that she is, she didn’t stop there and decided that initiating her own Zumba club would be nothing but the perfect opportunity to obtain the best leadership skills that she could get as a high school student. Moreover, Noor always looks for opportunities that develop her as a whole person and touch all aspects of her personality. Obtaining leadership skills served her social life and developed her at a personal level, however she decided to work on other aspects of her life such as her fitness and overall health. This motivated her to join several high school sports such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, water polo, and track and field. Her belief that being part of a mandatory education up to senior year isn’t enough to prepare a student for real life challenges drove her to be part of an internship at the British University located in Dubai. Moreover, she joined the Deloitte’s tax competition which was a major step in introducing her to many important figures and individuals who served to improve her connections in the business world. Perusing opportunities also motivated her to pledge Delta Sigma Pi during fall 2017 and was the VP Fundraiser for the Gamma Mu pledge class. This experience enhanced her professionalism and served as an opportunity of getting involved with both like-minded people and ones and with different mentalities who are as driven as she is. All of those experiences are paving her path that would lead her to be a successful banking investor in Dubai. Noor enjoys shopping, tanning and dancing.
