Meet Walaa Zakaria, an AGF scholar from Lebanon who pursued a BS in Medical Imaging Sciences at the American University of Beirut.

“Any opportunity that will come my way in the future will be because of the scholarship that you offered me in my undergraduate studies, as I wouldn’t have completed my education if it wasn’t for AGF.”

Walaa graduated from the American University of Beirut in 2022 and currently she is pursuing her master’s degree in Neurobiology at University of Pavia, Italy.

“My biggest dream is to become a professor to enlighten students with the knowledge I gained throughout my adulthood and deliver it in a way I wished some of my professors delivered it. I want to make a change in academics and biomedical research. This is how I give back to my community. And it wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for AGF.”
