Haya graduated from The University of Jordan with a B.Sc. in Human Nutrition and Dietetics. Her passion and success enabled her to get the Distinguished Student scholarship at her university. During her academic studies and after graduating, Haya worked with airlines, clinics, and hospitals. These experiences enabled her to gain technical and management skills.
Haya’s journey in civic engagement started when she was in school in the form of volunteerism by taking part in the school’s small initiatives that benefited her community. Her journey continues to this day.
In her last academic year, Haya combined the knowledge she gained in her studies with her passion for nutrition and public health, leading teams on a non-profit platform aiming to spread nutritional awareness to Arabic-speaking audiences. Haya also enjoyed volunteering in diverse areas through nahno.org, the national platform for volunteering and youth participation. Haya thinks that these experiences enlightened her on issues and obstacles that people face in our community.
If Haya had a superpower to change the world for the better, it would be to grant good health to everyone because the foundation of all happiness is health. According to Haya, health is indeed a divine gift to humankind.
Multiple circumstances, life changes, lessons, loss, lies, and too many other things to count have shaped AlMuthana (Dr. Alex) into the person he is today.
The person who he is today is a result of living in three different countries, dealing with people and cultures all around the world, having the insight of a doctor who tells him how the human body works and how to deal with the human being at his weakest, combining being a human and curing one. One sphere of knowledge won’t grant you success and that one sphere is not enough to proceed in life and have an impact upon others’ lives.
Becoming a Lazord Fellow put Dr. Alex in a test that sculpted his skills and gave him insight into what he is capable of learning and doing, implementing his skills, and coming up with a more aware person of what is the meaning of an opportunity, and giving it to himself.
He became a Lazord Fellow to be a part of a community that holds two important words as an aim. “Responsible leader” sees that the first word is scary to state but yet the second one is tempting to hold. Dr. Alex believes that the way to achieve your dreams and ambitions is taking responsibility for your own actions and leading yourself to greatness by learning and spreading the knowledge a person can gain.
Dr. Alex is a very sophisticated person that has always pushed himself beyond the traditional paths of life and stereotypical life He didn’t limit his life choices within his major but he also went beyond to discover, develop skills and experiences in other aspects that made him involved and evolve in the social and management of life aspects in three different countries. When he started his journey in Medicine he had the honour to claim the position of the Batch leader and advancing all the way to become the first-ever foreign president of the faculty of his university where he worked thoroughly with students and their well-being, academic development. Dr. Alex also became a TV host to spread awareness on matters that help maintain the original concept of humanity and working hard.
