Check out Mr. Ahmad Al Kayyali #HumansOfNCKSA
I was born in 1983 to Palestinian refugees. My parents settled down in Amman after leaving their homeland due to the Israeli occupation. My dad was educated until sixth grade and my mom had a diploma in English Language. As a family with five children, two boys and three girls, our life wasn’t always easy but I certainly had many life lessons growing up. I graduated from high school and dreamed of going to college to study philosophy, but I had to work hard in order to afford my studies. I was eager to learn and my curious mind made me question a lot of things.
I enrolled in university one year after graduating high school and worked several jobs throughout my academic career. I worked as a waiter in a restaurant, a salesman in a library and a worker in a factory. My long, eye-opening journey through university concluded when I graduated in 2005. At that time, my dream was to leave the country, not for myself, but to look for better opportunities that would allow me to help my family financially. In 2006, when I was 23 years old, I had the opportunity to work abroad at a local Bahrain institute as an administrator. I lived on my own during this period and learned to be independent; I even learned how to cook!
A year after I started working in Bahrain, I was offered a job in Kuwait and eventually made my way to Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Oman and finally, Saudi Arabia. I’ve spent nearly nine years working abroad. Throughout these years, I’ve learned many lessons through good and bad experiences that have led me to where I am today. My message to people looking for success is to work hard and be patient; it’s only a matter of time before you’ll achieve that success.
