Karama, 27, has a diploma in English from the Faculty of Education at Al-Azhar University in Gaza. Karama believed the best way to learn a language well is to connect with native speakers. Thus, she advertised as a teacher of Arabic for internationals in Gaza and now is fluent in English herself! Soon, she will enroll for a master's degree as well.
Karama (whose name means "dignity") also volunteers with the International Red Cross, which has taught her a lot about human rights and this influenced her desire to be active in the area of international law. Her story was published by the Kofi Annan Foundation.
