Hello my name is Ali Kahil and many people define me as the most diverse thing they ever encounter. I lived in Gabon, Africa for fifteen years, but I was born in Bucharest, Romania from a Christian Orthodox Romanian mother and a Shia Muslim Lebanese father. I have always loved to travel, and I have been lucky enough to visit and live in more than 12 countries. From the sixth to twelfth grades, I attended a French high school.

I am now living in Michigan and am a student in my sophomore year at Delta College. I was the President of Chez Les Napoleons (Delta’s French Club) and am currently the President of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Xi Delta Chapter. History and Political Science are, for me, the most interesting disciplines to study. I had the chance to work in research for the Bicentennial Office at the University of Michigan and it was the greatest experience I ever had. I also participated in a political debate at Delta College on immigration issues.

My hobbies are cooking, combat sports and especially writing. I published some of my essays and won a writing contest. I am in the process of writing my memoire.

Through the rest of this semester, I am going to guide you through my research. I am working on two different honor options (combined in one project) for my Recent American History class and my Comparative Government class. The objective of my project is to research and study the effect of free trade and laissez-faire policy on American history, and to compare free trade in the U.S and NAFTA to Europe and the European Union.
