Maya had to run away from her country, Syria, when she was just a teenager of 15 years old. Luckily for her, the United Kingdom received her with open arms.
While in the country, the teenager swotted hard and became a good English user and speaker before she made it into an engineering program
Despite life dealing her an ugly blow, she had a dream to become the first Syrian refugee female pilot and she achieved that.

In commending the lady, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees posted her photo as a teen and now that she has fulfilled her dream, telling Maya they are proud of her.
Below are some of the comments her accomplishment got on Twitter:
"Astonishing @GhazalMia. Keep moving forward with your career and development."
"Great work! I´m currently struggling with getting my body and head to cooperate during the traffic pattern haha and your victory is such an inspiration. As someone else commented: There is no reason to not wear a crown. You are a queen!"
