Abeer, Alaa, Leen, Marwa, Dalia and Merehan all start a new chapter of their lives this year, as 2016 DFL scholars.
While Alaa and Marwa dream of becoming doctors and saving lives,Abeer firmly believes in the therapeutic value of art and wish to use her experience and education “to show women that every voice is important and that they can use their own voice to get involved in politics”.
Leen wants to learn more about Graphic Design and ambitions to show the world how to solve problems in more creative ways.Merehan will study Politics and aims to make a positive difference in the lives of Middle Eastern women. Dalia sees the Daughters for Life Scholarship as “a turning point in her life”, giving her the opportunity to study Molecular Biology. She might become a recognized expert in this field. Who knows? There is no limit to DFL scholars’ success !
