Abdurahman graduated from UC in 2021 with an MBA and a deep love of history and historical figures. Following humanity's tumultuous year of 2020, his inherent creativity combined with his love of history to spark a burning desire to write a novel. The result is Alternate Realm: The Herald Awakened - A historical tour de force including iconic figures such as Boudica, Saladin, William Wallace and more!

Come by the Library (Level B) at midday to meet the Author, purchase a signed copy of his book and munch on some homemade Lebanese pizza bread.
