Ayman Tarek Elkholy was born on November 22, 1994 in Alexandria, Egypt where both of his parents were born and raised. Shortly after his birth, about a month, he moved to Dubai, U.A.E with his family where he spent his first 13 years. Although he grew up away from home, he visited Egypt with his family each summer on a regular basis which allowed him to stay in touch with his roots and culture. In addition, Dubai’s widely diverse and international dynamic not only made him aware and accepting of other cultures but also allowed him to fluently speak English as a 2nd language. At the age of 13, he returned to Egypt where he completed his secondary education in Cairo, during that time the Egyptian Revolution erupted which was just as rewarding and fulfilling as it was tragic. Finally, after graduating from high school he moved to the United States and specifically to Seattle, Washington where he is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Washington majoring in Business Finance.
