Bombed in Beirut

July 16, 2006

Ayah Bdeir, CCG’s recently graduated superstar, was back home in Lebanon when the war started. After some very near misses, as bombs fell around her apartment, her family took refuge somewhere in the hills outside of Beirut.
The Director remembers that when he first interviewed her, she said that her main goal at MIT was to use technology to promote human rights and international understanding. During her time at MIT Ayah charmed everyone with her intelligence, wit, and generosity. All of our thoughts and best wishes go out to her.
