Hometown: Cairo, Egypt / Augusta, Georgia
PC Background: I was a Political Science and French double major with a minor in International Studies. I was the president of French Club during my sophomore, junior and senior years of college, and the president of Fellowship of Christian Athletes my senior year. Also, I was a French tutor all 4 years, worked in the library all 4 years, studied abroad in Paris for a semester, and interned at PC’s Office of International Programs.
What’s your favorite PC memory? That’s a tough one. One of my favorites is sitting on the floor with my best friends, eating our very first home-cooked meal together, and making each other laugh ‘till we cried.
What is the coolest thing you have ever done? I went ice-skating ON the Eiffel Tower when I was studying abroad in Paris.
If there was a book about your life, what would the title be? “It’s like Wassup but Wasim – A Guide to the Unexplainable Word Choices of Wasim Gendi.” I apparently say many things that don’t make sense.
What’s your best advice for students during their college search? Be yourself. Don’t write down what you think colleges want you to be. Be open and honest about who you are and what you believe in. Colleges want to get to know you as a person, not just as a test-taker.
