Asmaa Tayeh

Asmaa, social media coordinator for We Are Not Numbers, is an English literature graduate from Gaza's Al-Azhar University. She lives in a refugee camp called Jabalia in northern Gaza City. Reading, calligraphy, photography, translation and art are her main interests. To Asmaa, writing is the best way to express her feelings, release stress and hold on to memories. "We (youth) are the slice of the society that has the power to change the world. That's why I'm working hard to leave a mark on this planet before I die," she says.
