Raghad Abu Shammalah
Raghad Abu Shammalah is a change-seeking young woman who was born in Saudi Arabia before moving to Gaza. She studied software engineering at the University of Palestine, is a member of Freedom Writers Foundation (FWF), and is a contributing writer to the collection, It’s a House Made of Sticks, published by Papercut Issues. She loves cooking, photography, coding, animals, playing with children, reading whatever she comes across, and writing. For Raghad, writing is not just putting words on paper, it’s her (and her people’s) expression of unspoken feelings and little victories.
