Syrian, from Mafraq; seeking Undergraduate degree in Nursing and is enrolled at Zarqa University.
In 2017, more than 11.3 million Syrians needed medical treatment. The International Council of Nurses estimates that 115,000 health care workers around the world died from COVID 19. Wars, pandemics and the climate crises brought untold suffering to civilians requiring more attention be given to this work force.
My name is Sultan Al-Ibrahim, from Aleppo Syria, Nursing major at Zarqa University.
I compensated for the challenges I faced as a refugee by focusing on my studies. My high school average score was 88.9% .
I wanted to be a nurse since I was a child. I still remember the day when our home sustained a direct hit during the hostilities, and I stood there unable to do anything - waiting what felt like eternity for the medical teams to arrive. When they did, I stood in owe admiring their dedication and the difference literally between life and death that their presence meant. I decided to join them when it is time for me to go to college.
My brother who worked to support us was unable to continue to do that due to an injury. I had to work and study at the same time to fulfill my dream. I will be the first family member to have a college degree.
I am committed, perseverant and determined to continue to work and achieve my goal.
It's difficult to imagine the the deterioration of Syria's health care system after a decade of hostilities and economic crises. I want to be part of the recovery efforts to rebuild this important life sustaining sector.
