You will remember Mariam’s story at https://www.hwsf.org.uk/refugee-stories.html
Herts Welcomes Refugees supports Mariam’s family whilst Mariam is now studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of Westminster. Recently Mariam sent us this lovely photograph and an update.
Mariam tell us that she has just completed an interpreting course and can now provide official interpreting services at hospital. She says “Engaging in this work has given me valuable opportunities to expand my medical knowledge and ability to interact with patients.” Mariam wishes to study medicine once she completes her Biomedical Sciences degree.
You may also remember seeing this wonderful video https://youtu.be/r5P40F5UIb8 made for Refugee Week by the University of Westminster where Mariam speaks about overcoming the challenges she faced when arriving in the UK as a refugee from Syria.
Congratulations Mariam, we are so proud of you and pleased to hear how well you are getting on. You are an inspiration!
