Omar Megahed – President
Living in four different countries: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, and Canada has had a tremendous impact on who I am today. I was blessed to have a diverse learning experience after being in the British International School of Jeddah, attending the King’s Academy Co-ed Boarding School in Jordan for the last two years of high school, and spending a year at the American University in Cairo before transferring to Concordia University. Everywhere I have been, all the cultures I have embraced, and all the people I have met have shaped me into the global citizen capable of giving back to any community.
Majoring in Industrial Engineering and participating in Concordia’s community have truly enriched my experience in Montreal. One of the most notable experiences was in my third year when I was elected as President of the Institute of Industrial and Systems and Engineers Concordia Chapter. Furthermore, I was one of the founders of the Concordia’s American Helicopter Society, a society that aims to develop Concordia’s helicopter enthusiasts in one of the world’s aviation-savvy cities.
It is an honour to be the President of the 60th Garnet Key Society and I am proud to be working with such wonderful and extraordinary people from various majors. The bond between all the Garnet Key members is already vibrant and I know that we will utilize this opportunity to leave a positive impact on Concordia’s community and have an excellent year ahead.
