College of Arts & Sciences, Academic Year 2022
from Ain Shams University

Carine Mankarious is a junior majoring in Electronics and Communications Engineering at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt. She is spending this academic year at the University of Pennsylvania. Born and raised in Egypt, she grew up with a very strong connection to her Egyptian heritage. On campus, Carine is a member of the STEP-UP club which is a student club helping with the raising and training of service dogs. Carine has also been a part of the Egyptian Federation of Scouts and Girl Guides since 2011, and so she has always been immersed in community service which gave her a different perspective of the world. She can build tents and start fires so guess who is surviving the zombie apocalypse! In her free time, she loves drawing, watching movies, reading about astronomy and cosmology, and doing Origami.
