About Maya

Born and raised in Damascus, Syria, Maya and her family fled to the UK after facing many difficulties in her country of origin. When she first arrived, Maya and her mother stayed in a hotel near Heathrow, and it was there she began to dream of becoming a pilot.

Since then, not only has Maya achieved her dream as the first Syrian refugee pilot but she has gone on to become a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and university student studying Aviation and Pilot Studies. She passionately advocates for refugee inclusion, job opportunities and education, and challenges negative stereotyping of refugees.
