Tarneem Hammad

Tarneem was born in Saudi Arabia, but grew up in Gaza and is an English literature graduate from Al-Azhar University. Following graduation, she worked as an English trainer for Amideast and a translator for a private company. Today, she is studying for her master's degree at Durham University in the UK. 

Tarneem loves languages and, in addition to English and Arabic, knows a little French.

She says, "When I stop working, I start dying," so she is always on the lookout for opportunities to show her leadership and develop new skills. Tarneem is proud of being able to work under pressure and also loves reading, writing, talking and laughter! Her dream is to help develop a public library in Gaza that looks like it came from the Harry Potter stories, including books from all cultures that will "bring out the bookworm in everyone."
