Tell us briefly why you are passionate about being involved with SheDecides?
“In my community, the Palestinian community, we have a lot of diverse characteristics. This can be a good thing, but at the same time it causes stereotyping, which in turn leads to many challenges and issues that women and girls suffer from.
I insist on being a part of the change that is about to happen all over the world, and make sure girls and women of my country have their full rights to decide, what so ever the issue!”
