Maha, an Egyptian Olympian diver, and a 3rd year media student at Florida International University, has dazzled us all!! She went all in and around and about different kinds of sports, taking shots, building passion, and discovering different scopes to find her soul sport; diving!
Maha took a shot with diving when she was 10, to be exact, In 2008. She participated with the national team in 2010 ( only 2 years after starting the sport). Diving was only one sports gate alongside other 5 doors! Maha played gymnastics when she was 5 and was awarded over 80 medals!
