Meet Jana Hmayed, an AGF scholar from Palestine who pursued a BS in Biology at the American University of Beirut.

“Not only did the Al Ghurair Scholars Program give the opportunity to study at one of the best universities in the middle east, but it also gave me a second family that made my university journey amazing. It is what made my dream into a reality, allowing me to learn, grow, fall, and rise back up, living my university experience to its fullest.”

Jana graduated from the American University of Beirut in 2022 and currently she is pursuing her master’s degree in Public Health – Health Management and Policy Program at the same university in Beirut.

“Giving back is at the essence of the next step in my journey. I plan to to continue my studies in the field of public health, a field where great changes and help are a necessity. I hope to get to work with NGOs like the World Health Organization where I can create an impact on the lives of those in my community.”
