Noble Step Foundation (NSF) was founded in December of 2014. Nader Matari & Mohamad Ghattas were enjoying their winter holiday in Houston, TX and spent an evening chatting about the struggles that college and university students face. In the spirit of giving, Nader & Mohamad decided to build an organization that will offer mentoring and encouragement for high school students that are ready to face the upcoming challenges of higher education and obtaining bachelor degrees and further. This was the start of NSF.
Life is short, when you find yourself getting the time to stop and smell the flowers, make sure that you think of those that have helped you to get to that point. Thank you, Noble Step Foundation, for this honor.
With immense gratitude and joy, I humbly thank the Noble Step Foundation and sponsors for this generous opportunity. Your kindness and support serve as a major stepping-stone for me on my journey to become a physician. You have inspired me greatly through your mission, and what your organization stands for. I am beyond grateful to be able to use my education and efforts to impact and improve my community, and the lives of individuals I encounter. Thank you for your recognition and encouragement, as I would not be able to pursue my goals without your unwavering support.
