Sahar Al Ahmad

International Language Academy of Canada

Sahar, 22, was born in Aleppo, Syria. She and her family fled the country and went to Turkey. There, Sahar volunteered for Syrian and International organizations. She also worked in her father’s pharmacy, translating the customers and patients’ needs for him.

Sahar dreamed of studying Environmental Engineering after one of her friends passed away because of the unhealthy environmental conditions Syrian people are currently experiencing. Although the post-war environmental clean-up is currently not a popular subject, Sahar believes that it will certainly be needed after the war.
