Areej Salem Al-Sheikh

Areej is a Syrian refugee from Sabinah which is part of Rif Dimashq in Syria. She has been in Lebanon since March 2013. Her family went through a lot of difficulties when they first came to Saida. She was depressed and lost hope because she has passion for learning and could not continue her studies. She saw advertisements for JCC Syrian program and she registered. She joined JCC's course in 2014 and went to Damascus to attend the final exams and passed them “The teaching process was very effective. Honestly, the coordinator and the teaching staff were very skilled. They did their best to help us pass the final exams.” She received the official certificate and now is studying political science at the Lebanese University. She adds “I am graduating this semester and I will be doing my Master’s degree next year, I will never lose my ambition again and it is because of the JCC.”
