Moving here from Orlando, Florida Arwa Al-Mutairi is thriving at West Lafayette High School.

It has been quite different for her as now the environment is vastly different compared to her previous school.

“I was in an Islamic-American curriculum school, there were a few Kuwaiti girls that I knew, all of the students were Arabic, it just felt like home.”

The discussion moving to the West Coast came about when her older sister decided to attend Purdue University for the spring of 2017.

Due to getting all her credits in she plans to graduate early in December 2018. ”  Arwa is a part of the American Sign Language Club at West Side.  She is the communications and media director. She enjoys helping other board members and take the club to new heights.

“I want to attend Purdue because West Lafayette feels like the perfect place to spend another four years as I know the town pretty well and I’m not up for the idea of moving and getting used to a new place again.”

Arwa plans to study Biology for undergrad, pursuing a career in Medicine. Considering her interest in American Sign Language and Medicine, Arwa aims to be a part of the Sign Language Club at Purdue.

She also wants to work with the Caduceus for her passion of Medicine. Arwa has volunteered at West Minister as she is fond of helping out others. Furthermore, living alone with her elder sister was a big responsibility and a show of courage that taught her how to be sufficient and self-reliant.

“Moving to West Lafayette has been a world-class experience and I couldn’t be more grateful for the support from my family and friends.”
