My Beyond Moments

Challenges, which gained from experiences passed through, is examine the human personality willpower, and have great effect on the personality of individuals for rest of his life.

In year 1999, I was a member in faculty soccer team and during the final soccer match, I was exposed to an accident, resulted to broken of my right arm, which should be fixed for six weeks at least, while the final exams will be within one week from that date, and because I used to write with my right hand, all friends, professors, and family members were expected that I would fail to pass the final exams of these year, particularly that the duration of splint will be concurrent with a five different courses exams from originally seven courses in that term, one of them is a machine element design, which needs not only to write but also to draw and sketch.

Meanwhile, I put a schedule to learn how I can use the pen by left hand and how much my calligraphy is clear and easy to read, the biggest challenge in these situation was the time factor and how I can increase the writing speed, considering that the university exams committee give me only 15 minutes above the original exams time.

My feeling was the insistence to pass this challenge to proof to myself that I can exceed the obstacles, if I have the willingness to do it, actually I passed all exams with moderate scores, which has been appreciated from all professors and dean of faculty of engineering at that time.

Other situation to be considered, recently While leading a project team, dealing with new heater manufacturing and installation, we faced a design problem, preventing successful start up. Serious troubles would have resulted, if this problem was not solved quickly.

Although the design and Engineering activities was not within our Company’s scope, I take the responsibility to execute the required modification in a quick response to prevent any losses of the production from occurrence

the results of such modifications were surprised all concerned persons, even the client sponsors, who are appreciate these efforts and approve these type of design to be used in all future heaters skids in the future.

Finally, the learning lessons, which gained from these situations, has been enriching my self-confidence and firm my belief with the ability to change and challenge the difficulties, even if those difficulties is hard or impossible to be passed for many people.
