Dr. Saad Saad has become one of the most inspirational people this year. He recently conducted a medical mission, tagging along with him several high ranking officials of Palestine and a massive number of supporters and colleagues who are also coming with him during his missions. As a kid, he never realized that he would become a surgeon in the future. His brothers have continually encouraged him to become an engineer, but the hellish temperature in Kuwait is causing him to think twice. He then realized that one of his siblings work as a doctor, working in an air-conditioned environment. He told his parents that he would like to follow in the footsteps of his sibling who became a doctor, shunning the suggestions of his older brothers to pursue their suit and become an engineer.
After his parents gave their approval to the plans of the young Saad Saad, he started to enroll himself at a local pre-medical school in Kuwait. He studied for a few years, and when he graduated from the local school, he decided to go on and leave his family in Kuwait to study in Cairo, Egypt. He attended the Cairo University, and he was considered as a bright student back there. He would study hard each night, leaving his friends to socialize outside. For him, studying is more important, and he had to keep his grades high. In the end, he was the salutatorian of his class, and his parents are proud of what he has achieved.
After he studied in Egypt, he had to go to the United Kingdom to become an intern for an English hospital. He worked hard to finish the program, and he gained his professional license after he graduated from being an intern. He went back to his family in Kuwait, and as he was spending some time with his family, he saw a promotion persuading the people to travel to the United States. He had to take an exam in Lebanon which would determine his future if he can live in the United States or not. Dr. Saad Saad answered all of the questions carefully, and when he looked for the results, he was surprised to see that he passed and he could now go to the United States to emigrate.

Why living in the United States, he decided to take up two courses that would hone his skills in surgery. He took up a certification in pediatric surgery, and another one in general surgery. He mastered these practices and received a certification for it. One day, his close friend and mentor Dr. H. Biemann Othersen, advised him that Palestine needs the assistance of people like him. He was inspired by his friend to travel to Palestine, and it changed his world forever.
