Palestinian refugee Ahmad Fayez Diab, raised in Syria’s Khan Eshieh camp, earned the highest score at the Economics and Sales Department at Linz University.
Ahmad was honored by the Governor of Upper Austria, Thomas Stelzer, during a ceremony held in the city.
Hundreds of displaced Palestinian refugees have achieved success stories, despite the traumatic upshots wrought by years of occupation and displacement from their motherland.
This includes scores of refugee students who have obtained the highest scores at their academic institutions; hundreds of refugee sportsmen/sportswomen who snatched the first places in regional and international competitions; dozens of artists who received renowned literary awards for their products and performances; and several housewives who turned trauma into a space of creativity.
Palestine refugees continue to be one of the most vulnerable groups around the world with immense humanitarian needs. Displacement from their native land—Palestine—has caused immense suffering and trauma over the decades.
