My name is Dareen El-Sayed and I'm in grade 10 IB. I enjoy science and have participated in various science competitions. I also enjoy reading and being involved with human rights organizations. Being globally informed about human rights is one of the things I strive to do. I love hanging out with my family and friends. Basketball is one of the many sports I enjoy playing in my free time. I attend Arabic Language School regularly every Saturday. My future goal is to go into medicine. I've wanted to do so since I was in Kindergarten and I try my best from now. I would like to pursue a career in medicine as it gathers my two favorite things in one career, helping others and science. I always try to excel in what I do, as it reflects who I am. My inspiration for my project came from a previous project I had conducted two years ago that raised many questions for me about the potential applicability of oregano.
