Today, I had the great opportunity to talk to Shaam Al Shayah, an alumn of FAU, who is today successful in the industry and hosts a high-quality YouTube Channel.

Short Bio: Sha-am (the name means "glory") is a young lady from Syria who came to Germany as a refugee and found a new home. She had to leave her home country Syria because of the war. She studied in Syria, Lebanon, and Germany switching between the fields of Mechanical engineering, Electronic engineering, and computer science but always focusing on Medical Engineering to graduate finally with a master degree as a medical engineer from the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg, achieving her dreams in being an educated working woman. She is also a Youtuber who shares her experience in Germany and a founding member of Medical Data donors. She is supporting other students in Germany to establish “Mubadara” (mean initiative) a nonprofit project to support students who are willing to start/proceed their studies in German Universities. So far it is unfortunately only in Arabic but hopefully, in the future, it can grow to English too.
