MU SPOTLIGHT 20/20
FAISAL ALRUWAITEA '16
Tell us about yourself.
I'm an international student. I am a finance major, and I work in the writing center as a tutor. I am also the Cultural Ambassador in the Saudi Student Club.
My favorite spot on campus is…
The HUB, because that's where I can enjoy both a good meal and a good conversation.
What’s your favorite Moravian University tradition?
Vespers, because it is beautiful and warming.
One thing that many of my colleagues don’t know about me outside of my Moravian University responsibilities is…
I sometimes tutor students who need help on writing or calculus at my place for free. I'm sharing this because I want to encourage people to provide free help to others.
If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?
My youngest sister. She always mimics me and she's always looked up to me. And she's the closest to me.
What’s your favorite color?
Blue. Because blue is high like the sky, and deep like the ocean.
Finish this sentence: “When I grow up, I want to be _____.”
An entrepreneur, because I have always admired people who built themselves out of scratch.
Who is your hero? Why?
My dad. He made me the man I am today.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Don't worry about what others think of you. Do what you have to do for you.
Have you given or received a #MyMoPaw yet?
I received a MoPaw from Intercultural Advancement & Global Inclusion. It made me smile because it made me proud.
