Ali Delbani

Ali initially faced academic challenges and was denied entry to the Life Science section due to grades. However, his story unfolds as an inspiring tale of determination, effective communication, and the crucial role of educational support in overcoming obstacles.
Ali’s persistence and proactive communication with teachers played a vital role in securing a temporary spot in Life Science, paving the way for outstanding performance thanks to the support provided by the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Fund to Discovery Education platform during the COVID-19 pandemic. As semesters passed, Ali’s success continued, eventually leading him to enroll in a university in Baalbeck to pursue his passion for biology.
Beyond academic help, the platform created a special bond between Ali and his biology teacher, Zahraa Zoughaib. This enduring connection extends beyond graduation, with Ali continuing to seek advice and remaining a dedicated student. His story stands as proof of the lasting impact of educational support on one’s journey, demonstrating that with determination, effective communication, and the right support, dreams can indeed become a reality.
