Biography

My name is Ayat, a happy 22-year-old. I believe I can change the world, and I love chocolate and ketchup.
Helen Keller once said: “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved”.This passion about robotics and programming made it easy for me to choose my specialty when I graduated from high school. I ended up studying Computer Engineering which I really enjoyed and still. I am a diligent student, reliable, ambitious, open-minded and highly motivated individual. I’ve been immensely involved in several aspects of the engineering arena, going above and beyond what is expected from me, and striving to learn more about my field, which made joining the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as a student member a perfect fit in my first year of undergraduate study.Recently, I participated in a Microsoft Internship program in Germany and US. Also, I’ve been involved in several IEEE conferences, held in Jordan since 2012 till present, in addition to IEEE Student Young Professionals (SYP) in Poland. I am a co-founder of the IEEE Computer Society Chapter at my SB, and I strongly believe in the importance of sharing knowledge with others, that’s why upon going back home from Poland, I co-organized the first IEEE Grand Tech conference at my university, and hosted 100 post-secondary students interested in computer science and mobile applications, throughout Jordan.I am a member of the Robotics and Automation Society who organized the first Sumo robotics for Jordanian universities. In 2015 I was the IEEE-WIE chair at my university, currently, I am IEEE-WIE Newsletter committee member and Region 8 (Europe, Africa, and the Middle East) reporter, with a mission aiming to urge women in engineering communities to fight for their abilities to grow and shine.
I’m Also the regional leader for IEEEXtreme.
I went to NASA Johnson Space Center – Houston, Texas. It was a lifetime opportunity to meet all the great minds and extraordinary people there, and a new phase of my life is about to begin once I finish my undergraduate study by next year.Then, The United Nations selected me to be the Youth Delegate of Jordan in the Youth Human Rights International Summit which held in the United Nations Headquarters – New York.I’m First Lego League FLL Judge, and I spent time teaching programming skills to children at refugee camps, and now I’m trying to give students from my school the opportunities to learn to program through free programs. “I am a strong believer in charitable work and volunteerism,”. “I think our role in society goes far beyond academic involvement. Public service and giving back to my community was the driving force behind my effort to start the “My Right to Dream Foundation,” which aims to reinforce the idea and meaning of having a dream and being able to realize it for kids and young adults in the underprivileged areas of Jordan.
For all of my hard work. I was a nominee for “Young Woman of the Year Award 2016,” a category in the Arab Women of the Year Awards. This prestigious global celebration of achievement and excellence for Arab women was held in London in December 2016.

The struggles and hardships I faced in every and each step of my life motivates me to keep striving for the best, believing in myself, and growing from the deep-inside “Power of I can”.
