KPA VICE PRESIDENT
Hi, I am Michel Ghrayeb. I am a medical graduate from Damascus, Syria. I graduated from the University of Damascus in 2021. After that, I spent 4 months as a Radiology resident at the Mouwasat University Hospital before arriving at Keele University to study for a PGcert of Applied Clinical Anatomy. I also have a long volunteering experience in Syria as a Youth leader in the Jeunesse Mariale Vincentienne (JMV). I am a reader, a writer, and an aspiring doctor and I want to make my contribution to Keele’s postgraduate community before I proceed with my path as a doctor.
Moving to the UK for my studies was not as simple as I thought it would be. It was challenging to adjust to a life away from my loved ones, to say the least. However, I am always grateful for the many blessings I have received in my life, and the KPA is one of these blessings. I met my first friends in the country in the KPA under the roof of the clubhouse that everyone at Keele loves and cherishes.
I aim to help students in their academic journeys by helping remove the many obstacles (many of which I faced myself) that can stand between them and their best abilities.
I aim to provide the ultimate work environment for my colleagues and clear the barriers to efficient communication and cooperation between us to make our contribution to the postgraduate community at its finest.
I aim to listen to and understand the postgraduate community because their needs will help direct my actions and make them accurate and impactful.
I aim to increase KPA’s attraction to students by helping provide a healthy and safe environment for them to study, meet friends, and share their experience as students of Keele’s University.
