is my pleasure to recommend Aya for admission to your undergraduate program.
Now I’m her counselor, before I was her Math teacher for two years, I have
witnessed her inside the class room, and outside it; she is eager to learn and
to help her colleagues to learn; Aya is an excellent well-rounded student and
one of the top 10% of our students.
is a very active smart person, especially in Math and physics, her skills and
potentials in Math exceed most of her colleagues, that’s why I have chosen her with
other 5 students from all over the school to participate in the AUC (American
University in Cairo) math competition. The AUC organized this competition for
university-level students, but some of our students were asking to participate
in to gain experience; Aya was the leader of this small group. The Ministry of
Education organized a competition in the same way of the AUC one, but for high
school students, and she was of the top 30 scorers. For all the skills she has,
I nominated her for the physics Olympiads this year, as I have noticed her
admiration for astronomy: she was the founder of Physitoopia club which
organized orientations and wrote simplified scientific articles for students.
Moreover, she is a member at ASC (Ain Shams Astronomy Club) which is also for university-level
students only. Besides, she was chosen to be the vice president of the Egyptian
researchers’ physics group at the school.
is a sociable person, who can make fruitful relationships in a community; she
was the vice president of the school union, and the school representative since
grade 10. Not only has she shown commitment to the responsibilities assigned to
her but also she showed dedication to what she is doing. I was amazed when she
and the school union members didn’t mind staying for another day at the dorm, after
the final exams when all the students went home, to meet STEM Unit and USAID
officers to discuss the school’s issues and try to establish improvements for the
Aya is an excellent presenter who has great skills that showed during the
orientations, which was organized for the younger students from other schools,
explaining STEM school’s system. She also used to give 3D designing courses to the
younger students to help them construct a model for their project’s prototype. Being
a member at CCC (Competitive College Club), she helped in organizing the
orientation by Amideast for our school to help the students be familiarized
with the college admission process and the standardized tests. Also, Aya is a
teamwork person, who can work under pressure, finish the task on time, and work
with any person, which was shown during her participation in many competitions like
ISEF, NASA Space Apps, and AZEX science fair; Aya’s personality has driven me
to choose her to be one of the students to represent our school in many scientific
conferences like Suez canal environment conference, and Energy4me conference at
is a skilled musician too; she is a member of the school’s band –the pianist. She
played in many events in the school, the most one I remember, was her
performance of Requiem for a dream for Beethoven.
has my highest recommendation. She is a sociable, hard-worker, and helpful person;
she is an excellent presenter and one of our best students. I am confident that
she will bring the same warmth, support, creativity and dedication to her college
classes and social community as she brought to our school.
