“Two things that should not be wasted, health and free time.” Meet Beedie Luminary Housam Tarrach.
What is your field of study and why does it interest you?
Currently I am studying Computer Science and Physics at the University of Victoria. What interests me the most about my Computer Science courses is having to think from multiple perspectives and use my problem-solving skills to workout a solution for the problems that we are given.
As for my Physics courses, I enjoy going into the lecture and learning the reason for why things behave the way they do. We also learn some of the coolest ideas in lectures which makes it very enjoyable.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Two things that should not be wasted, health and free time.
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Rumble in the Jungle.
Do you have a motto or personal mantra?
What was the last experience that made you a better person?
Having to stay home due to Covid-19 made me realize the blessing of the ability to interact with people. I think at some points of my life I may have taken for granted that I always had someone to talk to. But after having to spend most of my time at home due to Covid-19 I now really understand the importance of interacting with people for my psychological well being.
What is something you learned in the last week?
I leaned how to make these Shawarma raps. Not to be bragging but they are on the chef Ramzi level tastiness.
Who inspires you and why?
The story of the UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov is a huge inspiration for me. He was able to achieve success from a very humble beginning, and after becoming one of the top paid and known athletes in the world he remained true to his manners, family and faith.
What would people be surprised to find out about you?
I can speak Arabic, Turkish and English.
