Mr. Ajam was born in a small village in North Lebanon in 1962. He is the 7th of an eight children family and the first to graduate from college. He left Lebanon after high school to pursue university studies and higher education. Due to the economic conditions in war-torn Lebanon, Mr. Ajam self-supported himself through his college years and although he had to work extensively to pay college and life expenses he still managed to graduate with honor from the University of Houston and finished a Master of Science from the University of California – Berkeley, which is globally recognized and the number one in the United States for many fields including civil engineering.
Mr. Ajam is married with two young children.
