Tedora was born and raised in Egypt and moved to the United States at age 19. It was quite an adjustment to adapt to a new culture and learn a new language but that barrier is not preventing her from pursuing her dream job in healthcare, specifically as an Optometrist. Tedora is currently on track for the Pre-Optometry program at VCU. In her spare time, she loves traveling and exploring different countries and cultures. She also enjoys playing the guitar and listening to music because it brings her peace and happiness.
