Leya Bader
Leya Bader, born in Bahrain, currently studying a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Ulster University, graduating year 2024. My hobbies include hiking, drawing and cooking/baking. The advantage of studying abroad gives you the ability to explore so much more than just nature, culture, lifestyle, hobbies, museums and food but the chance to explore your independence. Moving to Belfast at the age of 16 was challenging but nonetheless it taught me essential life skills that will continue to grow and help me now and in the future.
