Noha Al-Afifi

Noha is a double-major at the Islamic Universitiy of Gaza, studying both education and English language and literature. She was born in the United Arab Emirates, yet is hardcore Palestinian. Her desire to live and experience more, not just to survive while trapped in reality, is manifested in her passion for reading and writing.  She hates stagnant life; therefore, she lives for volunteer work and extracurricular activities. 

When it comes to ambitions, Noha wishes to communicate a true image of Palestinians to the world and to refute the stereotypical image of them as being only people living under siege. She aspires to write and publish more Palestinian success stories for the world.
