“My name is Samah, originally from Syria, I am married and have 3 children. I studied  computer engineering in Syria and worked there for 3 years teaching computer networks. I have lived with my family in the Netherlands for 7 years now and joined the Shell Learning Program for Refugee Talents in the Netherlands where the outcome was joining the Shell IDT organization. I am proud to be one of the successful candidates in this program. It was a great journey and opportunity to strengthen both my professional and personal skills.”
