From Syria; seeking an Undergraduate degree in Pharmacy and is enrolled at Lebanese international University .
I am Mariam Alboushi a Syrian refugee in Lebanon, I was born in Damascus Syria in 2002. My mother is a mathematics teacher , she works in a humanitarian school ,and she planted in me the love of learning and helping others .Moreover, my father is a communications engineer . he works very hard to offer my siblings and I all the needs we need . I really appreciate my parents effort in these hard days.
It all started when I came with my family to Lebanon in 2013. because of the war in Syria we were obliged to leave our home , our memories and our warm place . even though, we started our life in Lebanon with very hard conditions , we believed that on this earth there's something that worth life. in the same year we arrived Lebanon , my parents strive to register me in elementary school in grade 6 .I continued education journey and in all grades I was the first among my friends . later In the brevet official exam, I got the very good degree. I n the high school I was the first over the whole school. when I was in the high school I worked as a private teacher at my home in order to be financially independent and to cover my needs .
when I get the high school certificate , I decided to study pharmacy in order to guarantee a good future . I chose the pharmacy major because I find humanity in it and in the job of pharmacist . I will do my best for the poor people who dies every day because they cannot pay the expensive prices of medicine ,those people should live. I want to get the highest degree in my major and someday I may be one of the people that changes the world . I have the passion to make the change and all I need is your help and cooperation.
"On this earth what makes life worth living" ,I read this statement when I was 12 years old and from that moment I believed that always we have a reason to live for .even in hard conditions, there is the hope that we should live for . our dreams , our goals , our parents that we have to make them proud of us and the poor that we should help are the reasons behind "on this earth what makes life worth living".

Volunteer Work/Social Capital
I volunteered with Save the Children for two years.
I really enjoyed every moment with little kids. We promoted hygiene among children in refugee camps.
We tried to bring joy to the children through various activities including painting faces among others.
Drawing a smile on the face of a child is more valuable than anything.
Giving is more valuable than receiving.
Making people happy is a blessing that outweighs being at the receiving end.
