Diane Matar '09 (Lebanon)

My name is Diane Matar and I am from Lebanon. I studied Environmental Health Sciences at the American University of Beirut and worked in the pharmaceutical industry, eco-tourism, and in an environmental NGO in Lebanon before joining MESPOM. For me MESPOM is not just a Masters programme, it is a journey into knowledge and culture where everyday is a discovery and a learning experience. The interaction offered by this course is unique and gives so much insight into problem-solving, and mostly challenges your mind to make you grow your own critical thinking and get the best out of your personnality and skills. This makes us better equipped as individuals and experts to face major environmental issues. The academic context is also very enriching, and I see myself representing my country in many circumstances and meeting interesting and important personalities, such as His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan who recently lectured at CEU. I am grateful for this opportunity... and the journey continues!
