    Your objective should be more verbose, "I am a motivated and energetic student seeking a retail position that will allow me to provide excellent customer service and...."

    Move "fluent in Arabic" under "skills", there is no "languages" section, and certainly not at the top.

    Your education should have your college listed along with your major and GPA (if it is good), and 2-3 bullet points about achievements. Below that goes your high school, also with GPA and 2-3 bullet points about achievements there.

    Make sure some of these acronyms are clear. What is OSSD? MAC?

    Quick learner and hard worker are not technically skills, but it might be ok if you don't have anything better. People normally put computer skills, language skills, etc. there.
