Syrian, from Daraa; seeking Undergraduate degree in E-Marketing and is enrolled at Zarqa University.
What if you got to the first crossroads in your life to find that you have lost your compass? Well, that is what happened to me. And what else should I expect when we individually and collectively try to find our way back somewhere, home, to the future, to reinvent our lives disrupted by displacement, a pandemic and stifling economic crises?
My name is Rahaf Al hammadi 20 years old from Daraa, Syria. I arrived with my family to Zaatari camp in Jordan in 2012. To be honest, I was confused about the major I have to choose. All I wanted was to become a working woman who could fulfill her dream of financial independence and share the burdens of her family.
I think I am lucky enough to have been able to get a high school diploma. However, I did not have an advisor that could suggest a major that can help a refugee work remotely and earn a decent living.. I found that digital marketing is the way for the future. It has endless possibilities.
I hope to be able to complete my higher education with your help.
Why Would Donors Fund You?
Like many of my colleagues, our generation has our future taken. We need to heal. I grew up believing that education was a right. I didn't know our right to live in dignity and free from poverty would be challenged. The gift of education is a gift that will bloom forever. I have discipline, determination, vision and a lot of hope. I can think outside the box and do miracles with the little I have.
How Do You Plan to Payback?
I'm very excited about college prospects. I'm ready to face this challenge because I know I have the passion for learning and the will to achieve. I'm aspired to work in organizations and companies to prove myself to be a successful person to have ideas that will help an enterprise or company to continue in the labor market in the fierce competition of thousands of companies by choosing and directing the human energy to the right goal for the place I work for. I hope I can pursue my study at university eventually. I know my dreams are big, but I have the will and the skills to pursue them with your help.
