Teacher in UN refugee camps in Lebanon & Officer with United Nations World Food Programme

"Charles College was a huge turning point for me. Like a lot of people from my background, even being the first generation to go to university was an achievement. However, the teachers here pushed me and encouraged me to dream big, believing in my potential and suggesting that I apply to one of the best universities in the world. I thought ‘people like me don’t go to places like that!’, but St Charles was the perfect environment to challenge all the barriers that sometimes limit us. I had all the resources, all the support and all the guidance to lift my own expectations and now I work at a global level"
