GLOBAL PLATFOR FOR SYRIAN STUDENTS –

A STRONG TESTIMONIAL BY A FELLOW

 

“My deepest sincere greetings and gratitude go to all of you, who are contributing for the Global Platform For Syrian Students’ project, the project that reached out beyond the borders to help my Syrian colleagues and I to continue our education through these dark and hard times.

I was born in Damascus, I grew up there, and studied there. My life plan was to continue my higher education studies, to give something back to my family, my people, and my country.

But soon after the uprising started the country spiraled into chaos, and unfortunately the worst was yet to come; a vicious immoral war began. My family, worrying about our life and safety, opted to send my brother and I out of the country, I left my studies, my life behind and fled the country. I lost several colleagues to this war, loved ones who had gone missing, never heard of after, and many others traveled abroad seeking safety.

My situation was extremely rough as my life kept spiraling from bad to worse. I couldn’t continue my studies, nobody cared about my qualifications, my future was ruined, and the situation took its toll on me both mentally and physically. Bad news and disappointments kept gushing out as my father, mother and two sisters were displaced inside Syria, forced out of our house under bullets, shelling and bombing. Our house, where my childhood memories reside got bombed, disappointments where accumulating, the anxiety and worry were so overwhelming that I reached a point where I was giving up, I was surrendering, until the day I got a phone call informing me that I got the scholarship. First I was in a state of denial, I couldn’t believe what I heard over the phone, suddenly there and then my heart started to race, I was flying due to happiness even though I was still not believing my own ears. For days after, I felt as if I was still dreaming.

The effect of this scholarship on my life is enormous, and it has extended further beyond me and reached my family, the people around me, my relatives and my friends.

My mother and father were in a deep grieving state over what had happened, given that their country is in war, their family got divided, displaced, the destruction of our house, their future as well as their children’s future looked bleak. However, when they got the news that I was awarded the scholarship, my mother got so happy as did my father. Somehow, it distracted them from all that grieve, and I felt happy that though I was unable to help them in these tough times at least through this scholarship I was able to give them a glimmer of happiness.

My sisters, brother, cousins, neighbors, and colleagues who are struggling to continue their education, they were giving up, they needed hope as desperation crawled into their hearts. However, my scholarship served as an example that there is still hope; if you work hard, if you try, despite the bad situation, despite all the ordeals, and despite the horrors, one should not surrender, something can be done, and also that the world can still be a wonderful and nice place despite our fears.

No words in this world can describe my feelings, my deep gratitude, my deep appreciation for granting me this opportunity, and this huge honor. I really hope that my other Syrian colleagues and peers get the same opportunity that I got.

All of you who are supporting the Global Platform for Syrian Students, please accept my sincere thanks, and special greetings from my family!”
