Nanchang Hangkong University
Aya (Lebanon)

I am currently studying chemical engineering at one of the most prestigious universities in the Middle East, but I believe that theoretical work without being practiced on field or in the lab, is useless. that is why I do my best to take every opportunity available to practice more and to train my mind to be less theoretical and more practical. I love manual work and I believe, after doing several internships in Asia and In Europe, that I have what it takes to be a successful engineer. Africa has always been a major source of interest to me specially with the endless resources this continent has. for me, the future is Africa and being able to do an internship with Bridging Gaps is a lot to aspire for.
