Hey, everyone!

This is where I’m supposed to tell you a little bit about myself. Here goes nothing!

My name is Dalal Abou-Jamous and since day one my life has been nothing short of interesting. Born exactly one month and one day before the Gulf War of 1990, my family had to escape the Kuwaiti war zone with my infant-self. Although I can’t remember what it was like driving through the desert in the middle of a war, it’s a story I could hear over and over again.

These are my beautiful siblings!

My family’s courage and heroism saved my life. I truly believe I have the greatest family in the world and for that, I’m blessed.

In my short 20 years I have grown more close to my siblings than I ever thought was possible. I couldn’t stand moving away from my family to study in another state, so I chose the University of Oregon. Even though I hate the weather we experience six months out of the year, I’m both close enough to home and far enough away.

I’ve wanted to plan weddings ever since I saw “The Wedding Planner” with Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey. It’s my passion to bring visions to life!

I am currently a public relations major and a communication studies minor. I can’t believe how fast the past three years have gone by — my experience as a college student has taught me a lot of responsibilities and I continue to learn and overcome challenges every day.

That’s me in a nutshell; if you have any questions or want to know more, let me know!
