Maha Mezher is fulfilling her childhood dream of working in the health sector. After completing a Medical Officer Assistant (MOA) training program, offered through the Vocational Training Corporation (VTC), she obtained her current position as an accountant at a hospital. The MOA program is supported by the Women’s Economic Linkages and Employment Development (WE LEAD) project, funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and implemented in consortium with the World University Service of Canada (WUSC) and Canadian Leaders in International Consulting (CLIC).
