As a little girl, Rana al-Hayek says she was driven by curiosity to explore the world of cars, even if just through her brother's toys. The 22-year-old mechanic now keeps busy repairing cars and breaking stereotypes in Lebanon's male-dominated auto repair shops.Hayek spends three days a week attending classes at Notre Dame University, where she's majoring in electrical engineering, and another three days a week up to her elbows in oil as a mechanic in an auto repair garage in Beirut, where she's the only female employee.Although Hayek said that now, a half a decade into her career, she has gained the trust of the team, that wasn't always the case.Hayek says her curiosity kept her going.
