Sami Samir Albreem
I am 23 years old and a graduate of iAl-Azhar University in Gaza, with a BA in psychology. My original dream was to study journalism, but since my two brothers already had chosen that major, my parents encouraged me to make a different choice. Still, it remains a passion for me that I will pursue. I want to educate everyone who lives on this planet about the suffering and pain that we Palestinians experience and expose the heinous crimes committed by the Israeli occupation. I was born to tell the truth, not to distort it. This is the wisdom I will believe throughout my life.
At university, I conducted research related to psychology and public health. I also am a participant in the citizen journalism program run by the Yala Young Leaders Academy (in cooperation with the Aileen Getty School). I hope to continue my education by earning a graduate degree in psychology in Spain. The professor for whom I do research visits Spain and has told me so much about it that I burn to see it for myself.
