Introducing myself and my journal: I am proud being a woman

About Me:
I finished the secondary education 2007-2008 and I studied civil engineering, from 2008-2013, at The Islamic University of Gaza in Palestine, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree. In 2011/ 2012 I attended the Palestinian youth advocacy network "PYAN" which aims to convoy the true Palestinian image to the outside world I work as a volunteer in more than one institution like partners for peace and development for the Palestinian "PPDP"
and as a translator for Ain Media company for art and production
During my voluntary work I started writing down my ideas and experiences with the intention of getting them on screen. I came to the subtle realization that I do not know or understand nearly as much as I would like to or have envisioned myself knowing. There is much more I need to learn to realize my dream and direct those stories into good movies. I want to be the best I can be and as a woman I feel the need to prove myself even more since the majority of great directors consists of men. But when people ask me why I choose such a difficult line of work to get into my answer is a standard one: because I believe in my dream

I want to go to attend this course because I am interested in exploring the world, looking for opportunities. The knowledge, skills and experiences that I benefit from the program will contribute greatly to my future career. A terrific benefit of this course is not only to boost chance of my future international career but also I will have opportunities to meet people from various nations and cultures, offering me different points of view and contributing to my flexibility and creativity, besides the cultural and language gains. I believe that life is not just about sitting and planning rather it is more importantly, about going out and implementing.

My Passions:
to share in building my country

My Challenges:
to reach with my voice all over the world

My Vision for the Future:
so positive and full of hope

My Areas of Expertise:
translation, writing and social voluntary work
