Mariam’s life-long dream is to help others heal

From a young age Mariam Elsaban had felt a strong desire to become a doctor because she wanted to help people and save lives. Her passion and dedication were only heightened throughout her school years and she took every opportunity to improve her knowledge and grades to give her the best chance to enter medical school.

In our mission to nurture the doctors of tomorrow, Al Jalila Foundation recognised Mariam’s talent and granted her a highly sought-after scholarship to pursue a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) program at Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU).

“Receiving a scholarship from Al Jalila Foundation has been a life-altering experience and one I am immensely grateful for. It has paved the way for me to pursue my passion to help others through the art of healing.  Thanks to this opportunity I am in my fifth year of MBBS at MBRU and I find myself more eager than ever to use my skills as a physician to make a difference to patients’ lives.”

Mariam is well on her way to fulfilling her life-long dream of becoming a doctor and we look forward to seeing what she will achieve in the future.
