From Syria; seeking a Highschool degree in Nursing and is enrolled at Philadelphia University .
My name is Fayez Bhader, I am 19 years old, from Homs, Syria. I left Syria with my family when I was 12 years old. The war made it impossible to live there.
We became refugees in Jordan but we did not live in a refugee camp
I live with my parents and my older brother. He just graduated with distinction from the School of Pharmacy at Philadelphia University with the help of a generous donor.Living in Jordan was difficult. I had to drop out of school and to work for 2 years.
I worked as a carpenter and as a painter. But my love for learning and the support of my family made it possible for me to go back to school.Despite the many setbacks and challenges, I worked hard to finish high school. I made it.
While studying, I volunteered with Sa’ed, a committee established by the Danish Refugee Council to help refugees. I joined many of it’s awareness-raising activities.
They included host community members and Syrian refugees. They focused on refugee and child rights, Cyber crime, and public health issues.
We also provided entertainment activities for children and helped with Ramadan Iftar.
I am ready for the next state of my life. I want to study nursing.I became interested in nursing when my father fell ill in 2012.
He was diagnosed with a serious heart condition. He had to visit the clinic regularly for cardiac monitoring. This was inconvenient and expensive.
We bought a blood pressure and blood sugar monitors.I learned how to use them both. My father did not have to go the hospital any more and we saved a lot of money.
I want to become a nurse not only to help my parents, but also to help my relatives and other members of my community. I can save them money that they would have to spend on basic but costly and life saving health services.
Once I acquire basic knowledge from the Nursing school, I can teach others in my community basic healthcare tips so that they could help themselves and their loved ones.
They can use their scarce resources on other basic needs like books for their children or basic nutrition.
I want to attend Philadelphia University.My tuition for first semester is $2,300 (two thousand and three hundred dollars). This includes registration fees, lab fees, transportation fees, books and other related expenses. My second semester tuition is $2,200.00 (two thousand and two hundred dollars)
Would you please help me heal the wounds of my community, at least the wounds that are within my power to heal?
