Israa’s friends call her "sunflower." She is a senior English literature student and works as a freelance content writer and translator. She loves reading, Victorian novels and short stories. Recently, after participating in the poetry fair sponsored by the Islamic University of Gaza, Israa began reading poems. She is fond of writing, as well, and has aspired to be a writer since one of her professors at university told her, "You are so creative and never run out of ideas!" From that point on, she decided to be a writer and has worked hard to improve her skills. Israa also is interested in art journaling and other types of journaling, because it provokes the imagination.
