First, I want to introduce myself in that blog. My name is Abdulaziz Al-turki, but I prefer that people call me Aziz. I'm 18 years old, and I come from Saudi Arabia. After I had finished high school, I applied for a scholarship program in the SABIC company, and fortunately I was accepted. The reason I am in the US now at the University of Maryland is because my company has sent me here to get my Bachelor's degree. This is my second semester here in Maryland; I spent my first one at Maryland English Institute to learn some English that was acquired to be accepted in the university. I can say that my previous semester was fun and very helpful working with the MEI staff and students. I hope also that the next five years will be as fun as the last semester, or even more.
