Mariam Shahata - Bachelor's in Biomedicine student from Egypt
Packing up and moving away from home and family was definitely not an easy decision, but KI's promise of high quality education was too tempting to resist.
Mariam has always been a big fan of biology. The subject sparked an infinite number of questions and motivated her to look for the answers, making her decision to study on the Bachelor’s Programme in Biomedicine an easy one. The research reputation of Karolinska Institutet was a key factor in her application and will provide the perfect basis for her future career in research.
Arriving in Sweden from her home country of Egypt, Mariam has already discovered the joys of a traditional fika. After all, who can resist coffee with a side of cinnamon bun? This should provide the energy needed for Mariam’s ambitious future: finding new cures for today’s most deadly diseases.
The feeling of studying in a lab while advanced research is happening next door gets me motivated to improve and expand my knowledge.
