Asmaa Labbad

International Language Academy of Canada

Asmaa is a bright 21-year old student. She was born in Damascus, Syria, where she successfully completed a Diploma of General Secondary Education in Science.

In 2012, Asmaa, her two sisters and their mother escaped to Lebanon. There, Asmaa and her sister Ayaat -who also won the scholarship, seized all the opportunities to learn and grow. Asmaa’s journey of learning led her to become a teacher to child refugees in Lebanon and to volunteer with UNHCR, the UN agency that deals with refugee crises.

Asmaa is entering the program with the confidence that this will get her one step closer to the successful life and career she dreams of for herself.
