Dr. Saad Saad was born in a Palestinian family who is in constant migration because of their citizenship status. During his high school days, his family was living in Kuwait, and he does not know what degree he would be taking in college. He has several brothers who graduated as engineers, and they are persuading him to follow their steps and become one as well. Another set of his siblings were doctors, and one is an educator. The young Saad Saad is having difficulties in choosing which kind of career would suit him best. One hot day, he noticed that he could not stand the heat from the sun. He thought that being an engineer would require them to stay so many hours outside, and he told himself that he would not be able to do it. Instead, he would like to work in an enclosed room equipped with an air conditioning system.
He told his parents about his decision to become a doctor. He would expect that his parents would still persuade him to become an engineer, but he was surprised when they told him that they would be giving him their full support. The young Saad Saad took up a pre-med degree at a local university, and he had to transfer to Cairo to pursue his studies. It was not easy saying goodbye to his family, but he told them that he would be coming back someday. The young Saad Saad enrolled himself at the Cairo University, and he studied hard all throughout his university life. His hard work paid off, as he was awarded as the second top student in his class. Right after graduating, he went back to his family and told them that he would have to leave for the United Kingdom where he will be conducting his internship.
