- Dream and Mission Statement:
My dream is to that become a musician and composer so I can help children learn music. Hopefully, my country will be stable and peaceful and I can develop music there.
- Why you should fund me?
I want to become a composer like Yanni or Paco de Lucía. I left my country (Syria) because of war; today I live alone away from my family and work in a country where I receive limited support.
- Volunteer Experience:
I worked as a volunteer for 4 years in my country (Syria ) on the Quality of Life team helping families affected by the war. I worked in AKF (Aga Khan Foundation ) for 1 year doing data entry and fact checking and in “Save the Children: organization for 10 months in Lebanon helping children from Syria and Palestine.
- Awards & Achievements:
2017 »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs« participant; I was chosen as one of the 250 participants (of 800 total applicants) for the event August 23-24, 2017 in Kulturbrauerei Berlin.
My name is Nawar Alhamwi. I am from Syria and am currently studying at the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music. I believe that I have the talent to achieve my dream to become a musician and composer. I want to help children learn music in the future if/when my country becomes peaceful and develop music there. Here in Lebanon, students are not allowed to work so housing and all costs need to be secured from my family. I hope you’ll support my efforts to further my passion and pursue my potential.
