Asmaa Tayeh

Asmaa has always seen herself as a young woman with a bright future no matter how negatively the unemployed people around affected her. That journey began when she wondered, “I am checking social media websites almost 24/7. How can I use what I learn to both make a change and earn some money?” That is when she started to dive into the media and writing world.

After studying English literature at Al-Azhar University, she first volunteered and then was hired as the social media coordinator for We Are Not Numbers. Later, she was promoted to operations manager.

To her, the communication and writing are the strongest tools for storytelling – a mission to which she has dedicated herself. She also works as a manager for a Gaza rock band called Osprey V, and a social media consultant for different NGOs.
