Hanin Alyan Elholy

Hanin is in her final year of studying English literature at the Islamic University of Gaza, from which she also will earn a diploma in education. She believes "writing is power, creativity and relief." Hanin writes when her emotions sun high, as well as when intrigued by "uncanny ideas and mysterious issues." Psychology, drama, poetry and art are her other loves. In addition to We Are Not Numbers, Hanin is active in the Challenge to Change Little Sister-Big Sister progam and two initiatives to use social media to educate Western audiences on the Palestinian case: 16 October (named after the date the UN's Goldstone Report was issued) and 3D Youth (dedicated, determined and driven).
