Shenouda said she moved to Germany for university education in 2015 with one suitcase and a one-way ticket. Sharing her success story on LinkedIn, she said that move was the best decision of her life, adding that adversity has evolved her for the better.
She said: “I struggled in gaining a visa for months and I was a month and a half late into my lectures.
“I couldn’t seem to keep with the coursework I missed while trying to adjust to a new culture, language, and environment.”
Shenouda said during her studies and job hunting, she was always so focused on the future and she never really lived in the present or celebrated through her struggles.
She added: “After looking at both these pictures of me in my high school and university graduation, it’s safe to say how much adversity can evolve us for the better.”
