My name is Hana and I am a translator and assistant coordinator for the upcoming program in Mersin. I graduated from Birzeit University in Ramallah with a degree in English Literature in 2013 and have worked with two community projects in Ramallah before joining the A Global Voice for Autism team.
I found out about this amazing and holistic program from my friend and A Global Voice for Autism Palestine Coordinator, Fida Elian, and I am thrilled to participate as a translator for the team. Being able to work with families who survived a deadly conflict in their homeland is invaluable to me.
I am also excited to join an amazing team who volunteered their time and expertise to help autistic Syrian children go to school and to give guidance to their teachers and families on how to help the children communicate and interact with their surroundings.
I am a nature lover and in my free time I enjoy hiking and learning about environmentally-sustainable practices and permaculture. I am also passionate about arts and culture, especially cinema and film studies.
