UOB’s Saly Greige Crowned Miss Lebanon!

Self confidence had a lot to do with it. “Self-confidence was one of her defining features,” says Dr. Najib Gerges, chair of the Department of Civil Engineering.

Then, again, Saly Greige has good reason to be confident. Not only did she display enough magic, composure, and intelligence to charm the jury of the Miss Lebanon 2014 pageant on October 5, but she was also a quality student.

A native of Darshmezzine in El Koura, Ms. Greige, 24, graduated from the University of Balamand with a Bachelor of Science degree and soon after, in 2013, with a Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree.

Dr. Gerges describes former student and Miss Lebanon 2014 as a “very smart and polite person who was very serious about her work and who always knew exactly what to do.”

Professor Nabil Fares says he remembers Ms. Greige “as a soft-spoken, well-mannered and smiley person who quietly and honestly strove to continuously improve.”

Asked by the jury what causes she will be willing to uphold in the coming year, she said she would defend the cause of Lebanese women. “If I were to take part in one demonstration, I would choose to participate in a demonstration to defend the rights of Lebanese women.”

Ms. Greige is expected to call on her alma mater soon, and we will report on her visit when it does happen. Until then, we wish her good luck with her new responsibilities.​​​​​​​​​
