World’s cities and urban architecture is where I see myself, researching, planning, creating and mostly making an impact on future lives. The architecture world is more than just a profession I chose as my work, It’s the way of life I chose to live by, a science that I can express my Structural vision, contributions and ambitions to improve people’s living environments,around the world. I I have recently graduated from : Masters in Advanced Architecture program in IAAC – Barcelona. Winning this scholarship will make it possible for me to continue my masters studies with the Design of Cities program in Sci –Arc, LA . and push me one step forward in Pursuing my goals. In both of my bachelors and masters studies, my main theses were involved with the urban research, structure planning and development. Before In order to further base and strengthen my knowledge with our serownding enviroment, I studied marine biology physics chemistry and mathematics. These are my fundamental foundations and the sources to most of my inspirations. I find architecture and urban planning to be the most natural continuance to the multi-disciplinary path I have experienced and gained so far. Human behavior, history, societies, demography, philosophy, cultures, religions, technology, structure, natural phenomenal, biology, environment eco systems and physics, all are reflections of the reality in which is our responsibility to take care of.

Harvard Revokes Parkland Shooting Suvivor's Admissions Offer

June 18, 2019

by Susan Dutca-Lovell

Harvard revoked more admissions offers - this time involving 10 students who participated in a Facebook group called "Harvard memes for horny bourgeois teens." Jokes about abusing children and the Holocaust and insulting comments about different racial and ethnic groups were found in the group, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Earlier this month, Harvard also rescinded an admission offer to Kyle Kashuv who, when he was 16 years old, used inflammatory and racist language, including the N-word, right before the Parkland shooting at his school, Stoneman Douglas High School. The shootings have since "changed him and made him more mature," he claims. Kashuv became famous for his conservatism, pro-gun and pro-Trump activism which he believes, represent a different view on how to prevent future, like tragedies.

In a recent Twitter post, he apologized for his past comments and stated that, "We were 16-year-olds making idiotic comments, using callous and inflammatory language in an effort to be as extreme and shocking as possible...I'm embarrassed by it, but I want to be clear that the comments I made are not indicative of who I am or who I've become in the years since." Shortly thereafter, Harvard looked into his case and eventually revoked his admissions offer. Though university personnel appreciate his "candor and expressions of regret," Harvard "takes seriously" the "qualities of maturity" and of "character" of the students it admits. Despite appealing the revocation, Kashuv was turned down. In his defense, Kashuv argues that, "throughout its history, Harvard's faculty has included slave owners, segregationists, bigots and anti-Semites. If Harvard is suggesting that growth isn't possible and that our past defines our future, then Harvard is an inherently racist institution. But I don't believe that. I believe that institutions and people can grow. I've said that repeatedly." In your opinion, should Kashuv have had his admissions offer revoked based on something he did when he was 16? Why or why not? [...]
