Julie-graduating

Julie

Julie is preparing for a well-paying job in the West Bank. She came to the Diocesan Vocational Technical High School in Ramallah so she could find employment when she graduated. Jobs are scarce for young people in Palestine. Not strong academically, she thought the Hotel School curriculum would be a fit. Julie was shy and unsure of her capabilities, never expecting to pass the state exam for university. Instead, Julie found her voice. She studied hard, passed the exam and is now a student at Al Quds University studying Business Administration. She may be running a hotel before long. Donor support made Julie’s education possible.
