Dr. Saad’s Humble Beginnings and Career Hope
He had thought he was headed towards the career of his two other brothers. However, when he examined the environment in which they worked he decided that it would be his best choice of career. He points out that his brothers worked outside, on even days when they were doing 110 degrees. He decided that he would rather go for a career that would allow him to work from indoor locations. That’s how the young Saad settled on medicine and surgery. He there believed that surgery would allow him to work from indoors while enjoying the cooling effects of an air conditioner. It, therefore, means that he never even planned to work outside his country, let alone settle there, where the temperatures would probably be tolerable.
