    Humans of Nablus 20

    Two years ago, I graduated from university with a degree in business administration. Since then, I have been taking different kinds of courses in order to gain more confidence, to overcome my shyness, and to learn about the world. In the future, I want to visit Malta in Spain because I have heard that there are a lot of Arabic people there. I want the first new place that I explore to be a place where I feel connected to the people. This is my dream! I also want to invite people from around the world to come to my Continue reading…

    Humans of Nablus 19

    When I was volunteering last session, I cooperated with the volunteers and got close with the children, especially the children ages 8 and 9. I did many exercises with them to help them write letters, and they learned them. For example, at the end of a few classes, I gave all of them homework to write a small story.

I’m so happy and excited to see them again. عندما تطوعت الفصل الماضي كان هناك تعاون بيني وبين المتطوعين Continue reading…
