22-year-old Maya posted a video on her Instagram account, which showed her piloting the plane in successful ascent and landing, at Cambridge Airport.
She commented in her post, “No longer a student, but a nice memory when I landed at Cambridge Airport, on World Refugee Day, I decided to share a little bit of my flying experience.”
“I share my experience, being a proud Syrian, and a former refugee. I answered some of your questions that pointed out the most important points I saw and I will answer more soon,” she added.
In an interview posted on her Instagram account, Ghazal said, “I want to use my story and my platform to highlight the importance of having more women in aviation.”
“I feel that when one woman succeeds, we all succeed and we can create a world where youth and women are allowed to thrive and think outside the box without labels for their disability,” she added.
On her position as a Goodwill Ambassador, she commented, “I want to give hope to refugees, and other young people and women that anything is possible and I am using my voice to break stereotypes about refugees, and show that we can be the role models we want to see.”
