I majored in IT for my degree at An-najah University and have since struggled to find a job. Last session I decided to volunteer at TYO and it was so much fun. I learned I love working with children because they are silly and make me smile. When I am here I am filled with so much happiness. Now I know that I enjoy my time working with children more than IT, so I hope to find a job where children are the focus. تخصصت بمجال التكنولوجيا في جامعة النجاح الوطنية ومنذ ذلك الحين وانا اواجه تحديات لايجاد وظيفة .

Education is so important. We need education so that we can develop ourselves and develop our country, and also because education really helps people.  I love working with the little children, but it can be hard.  In the beginning, they always started to cry, and it can be hard to control them, but we try.  We try to hold them and be soft to them.  And we succeed!  My best memory of playing with them is when we went outside with another class and played football with my class against his.  My team won! التعليم مهم , نحتاج اليه لتطوير Continue reading…

My goal is to work with children in the local hospital and currently I study Health Management. I received my first degree in nursing and worked with children but I did not know how to deal with them. TYO has given me the opportunity to develop my skills in leadership through the local intern program. I have learned how to deal with them when they are stubborn, crying, and sad. Also, I practice basic first aid with the kids from what I have learned while getting my nursing degree. This has made me more confident in my skills. هدفي هو Continue reading…

I am having a great time with the kids at TYO. After my Bachelor’s degree, I would like to continue my studies and accomplish my dream of opening an English club for children. I would like to use my experience to make a lasting impact in the lives of children in the region. Children are very clever, they communicate with other children very easily most of the time. Sometimes, they are afraid of sharing during games and activities with others. I have always wanted to volunteer with children. I love children very much and I would like to use my Continue reading…

The advice I would give someone who wanted to pursue their dreams would be to put the goal in front of you.  Start early.  For me, I always wanted to be a journalist but I had some set backs and changed my major to business administration.  At first I didn’t like the idea and took a semester off.  During this time  I thought about my situation and started volunteering here at TYO.  Volunteering taught me about having patience and it has help me to learn from others to motivate me in my own goals. After I graduate with my degree Continue reading…
