Mohammed Bitar from Syria was awarded a scholarship through the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund to study pharmacy at Luminus. He arrived in Jordan 7 years ago and started working at a pharmacy in his local neighbourhood. Where at the time, he tidied up the pharmacy and helped customers with what they needed. He considers his boss as his mentor, who always encourages him to keep learning and pursue his education. His mother is his main supporter, she also always encourages him to continue education.

“Pharmacy is my passion; I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to study pharmacy at Luminus; it is a responsibility and a huge challenge, and I am up for the challenge that lies ahead. I have learnt that having confidence, working hard and being persistent all contribute to achieving your goals. My main advice is to never lose hope”
