“I believe education is one of the main building blocks of any community to move forward. Our community was shaken by war, instability, and tension. We need education to be able to move forward. It is not just about graduating with a degree; it shapes our personality and shapes who we are. Refugees need this door opener, they need to get out of the mentality that they cannot achieve, that they cannot reach their goals, just because they are labelled as refugees”. I look up to HE Abdul Aziz Al Ghuriar, he provided a golden opportunity to so many smart young refugees. He taught me the power of giving back. I would like to one day be able to pass it forward, to provide disadvantaged people with the gift of education.
