My name is Hashem Abdou. I am an Egyptian first year student at Harvard College studying Biomedical Engineering. I have a passion for entrepreneurship and photography and also play tennis. On campus, I am involved in a consulting group and a radio station and also play squash on occasion. In high school I was a part of MUN, student government and the entrepreneurship organization INJAZ Al-Arab, as well as various sports. Having grown up in an international school in Cairo, I am fortunate and excited to be surrounded by fellow diverse students and mentors who are willing to put together such a conference.
