I think the Arabic House was a transition point for me. I lived here for three years and I’ve met some of the greatest people here. I had the fortune to meet two different tutors, one of whom had a profound impact on my life. She came from Morocco, spoke very little English, and was the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. She wouldn’t hurt a fly. Just developing a relationship with someone where you communicate with few words and lots of gestures, it teaches you a lot and you have to adapt to different situations. I know I’ve seen her struggle, but myself and some other people were always really close to her and I still talk to her. She’s one of the main reasons the Arabic House will always have a special place in my heart.
