He said he knew hard work will pay off and he decided to work hard. His words:
"Yesterday marked a very important day of my life, the day I officially became an American. 5 years ago I moved from Egypt with little money and a huge dream, the American dream. I knew that in America working hard will pay off, and the opportunities were endless.
"But what I didn’t know was the amount of support that I would get from every person that knew my hustle. I worked as an Uber driver 8 -10 hrs/day for 2 years, I worked on new year’s, holidays and weekends while building 2 startups in the U.S and Egypt."
