My name is Abdulaziz AL Ibrahim; I am 20 years old and I was born and raised in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.My family is large.I have three brothers and three sisters.We are all very close to each other, but I am especially close to my brother, Fahad.My brother and I are friends as well as roommates and, as my older brother, I look up to him.My other siblings go to school in England and in Saudi, where my parents live.Even though my siblings, my parents and I do not all live in the same country, I travel with my family every summer.I look forward to the summer because it is a time when my whole family is together.
My family business is a big part of our family-life.My oldest brother works with my father in our family real estate business and all of my siblings attend school.I am studying business because I have enjoyed business since I was young.When I was a child, my father took me to work with him one day.I was captivated by the work-environment at the office; I liked the busy, productive, creative and bustling atmosphere of the office from the start. I knew that someday I wanted to work in an office like my father’s and hold the same respect that my father held from his employees.I am studying business so that one day I can start my own company, also selling real estate like my father.But I am also studying business because it is what I have always wanted to do since I was a child.Earning an M.B.A. and beginning my career will be a very exciting and proud moment for me and for my family.
For fun, I enjoy sports like soccer, horse back riding and tennis.I have loved horses since I was young.When I was a teenager, I hoped to be a professional rider.But as I grew older, my education was more important to me, so now I ride horses only for fun.Riding horses is good exercise, but it is also very relaxing and fun. I also love movies and learning about the cinema of various countries.
I am also very interested in the stock market.I am a stockholder myself and I enjoy trading stock because it is thrilling when I am able to earn money because of good decision I made.I enjoy research companies to invest in, and I do not believe that high risk means a high return.All the companies I invest in are long-term stable and I always avoid volatile stocks.My financial goals in life are to keep investing in stocks, purchase real estate and keep working hard at my job.I believe that these things will help me become successful in the future.I
In the future, I would like to eventually work with my father’s company.However, first I must complete my education.I plan to take a B.A. and an M.B.A. while studying in the U.S.Then I plan to work at a bank or other financial institution for two years, to build my experience.After I have built a good resume, learned many things, and proven that I am a great employee, I will seek a higher position or perhaps open my own company.Owning my own small lending institution or real estate firm in Qatar would be ideal because of the huge amount of economic development happening there.
But my goals in life are not only about my profession.I also want to pursue my dreams of travel.For instance, I hope to visit Africa, Alaska and India.I love the cinema of various countries and would love to travel to different countries and take a film class in each country.I love learning about new cultures and getting to see and meet different people from all over the world.I know that I am open-minded because I have seen so many different cultures and I hope to continue that for the rest of my life.
