Muhammad, an 11 year old Arab Muslim, is part of the ITEC High Performance program at The Ben B. and Joyce E. Eisenberg Israel Tennis & Education Center – Jerusalem. Like his older sister Sewar, Muhammad dreams of representing Israel in tournaments both nationally and abroad. He practices tirelessly at the center and looks to his coaches for inspiration and guidance as he continues to achieve to the best of his abilities.
The ITEC has also enabled him to meet and get to know Jewish children his own age, many of whom have become his close friends. He realizes that the life skills he is learning at the ITEC will help him to succeed in life…both on and off the court.
“My coaches have always been very supportive, encouraging me to put forth the effort necessary to excel at my first love…tennis. I have big dreams of one day becoming a famous player. I believe I will achieve my goal.”
