I am Ali Mohammad Mansho from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. I am 26 years old. I am married and I have only one child, 16 months. I live now in Kissimmee, Florida.

My goal is to learn there and then come back with a useful education to benefit my society, my company, and myself. In addition to that, I look forward to being a successful entrepreneur by opening my own business in Saudi Arabia.
