National Defense University’s Fellows Dinner at the Home of Farouk Shami

More than 100 senior ranking military officers from 60+ different countries attend National Defense University as International Fellows, to obtain their Masters Degrees. This process allows them to learn about American government, institutions, political processes and economical systems. It is through the generosity of the Sponsorship Program that the Fellows are immersed into the American society, culture, neighborhoods, schools and families.

On January 10, 2018 , Military Representatives from 54 Countries attended a reception and dinner hosted by Dr. Farouk Shami at his home in Spring, Texas. Dr. Shami is on the Board of Director of NDUF and an established Sponsor.

Dr. Farouk Shami, Chairman of Farouk systems, came to this country with only hopes and dreams. He turned his struggles in his hair care industry into challenges. Through his hard work, determination and following the American dream, he was able to grow his business into the International Hair Care Empire it is today. Dr. Shami is proud to tell his story of his humble beginnings and boast about how America is the land of opportunity. He is a proud American and contributes Internationally so we can all strive to live in peace on one planet. His speech at the reception delivered this message with heart and soul. According to Dr. Shami, “As a proud American by choice, it is both an honor and a privilege to be of service to such an important organization such as the National Defense University Foundation.”
