Aram is a badminton player who was forced to flee war-torn Syria after he could no longer safely go to school or continue his training. He and his sister used to play for the Syrian national team, for which they secured a silver medal in doubles at the Bahrain International Tournament U19.

Now pursuing his sporting goals in The Netherlands while being a student-athlete at the Johan Cruyff Institute, Aram is excelling in his badminton career, most recently reaching the quarter-finals of the 2022 Luxembourg Open.

He considers himself incredibly lucky to have found his current club in Almere, which helped him settle into his new life, meet new people and return to his sport.

Aram competed in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 in the men’s singles event.

In 2022, his parents and one of his sisters joined him in The Netherlands. He also received Dutch citizenship.
